Making Hudson Memories
Interact with What is Missing by Maya Lin and our environmental gallery Hudson Riverama to discover Hudson River species, both past and present.
“What is Missing?” is an ongoing, interactive digital art project and environmental advocacy movement. “Map of Memory: Hudson River Timeline,” on view in the exhibition galleries, is a multi-channel video projection composed of text and images that narrate habitat changes and population fluctuations of various species in and around the Hudson River throughout history. Visitors are invited to add and share personal memories of what they have witnessed disappear or be restored in the natural environment, helping to build “What is Missing?” together as a global online resource—what Maya Lin calls her “last memorial.”
