"Systematic Landscapes" packs a wallop, but it also includes several small works whose impact is more delicate. There's a series of pastel-on-paper rubbings made from panes of cracked glass. In this case, the cracks are meant to look like rivers.

Among the loveliest of the small-scale works are several old atlases, such as the one below, whose pages have been carved away, as if by a bookworm with a razor blade, to form delicate, abstract paper craters. But there's a physicality even to them. Making them, Lin says, was "like taking a walk in a book."
