Renowned artist, architect, and environmental activist, Maya Lin, is poised to make her mark once again with her groundbreaking generative art project titled “Ghost Forest Seedlings.” This innovative project is an extension of Lin’s acclaimed 2021 installation known as Ghost Forest, which captivated audiences at Madison Square Park in New York City.
Ghost Forest Seedlings, the new project draws on Lin’s acclaimed 2021 installation Ghost Forest, presented at Madison Square Park in New York

Through Ghost Forest Seedlings, Lin will facilitate a donation to an environmental conservancy organization, which she will select before the project’s launch
The project, produced by Pace Verso in collaboration with E.A.T_WORKS, will be released on September 18 to coincide with Climate Week NYC
A selection of Ghost Forest Seedlings prints will be on view at Pace’s 540 West 25th Street gallery in New York from September 18 to 22
At the heart of Ghost Forest Seedlings lies a profound exploration of organic growth patterns within a subterranean network of tree roots. Each mesmerizing artwork, offered at an accessible price point of $1,000, presents a captivating blend of tangible and digital elements. With every Ghost Forest Seedlings creation, art enthusiasts can expect to receive a distinctive physical print, a complementary NFT (Non-Fungible Token), and a captivating video timelapse.
Beyond its artistic significance, Ghost Forest Seedlings holds a broader mission. Lin’s project is not just about artistic expression; it’s a means to contribute to environmental conservation efforts. Lin is committed to donating a portion of the proceeds from this project to a carefully chosen environmental conservancy organization, demonstrating her dedication to sustainability and ecological causes.
The collaboration behind Ghost Forest Seedlings is equally impressive. Produced in partnership with Pace Verso, the hub for cutting-edge Web3 projects at Pace Gallery, and E.A.T_WORKS, an experimental Web3 art studio, this project represents a convergence of art, technology, and innovation. The release date, September 18, aligns purposefully with Climate Week NYC, a fitting context for a project that echoes environmental consciousness.
