the poet tan lin is the brother of architect/sculpturist maya lin?
that's crazy. to have all that talent in one family.

what does lin (the poet) have to say about his art:
“In a perfect world all sentences, even the ones we write to our loved ones, the mailman or our interoffice memos, would have that overall sameness, that sense of an average background, a fluid structure in spite of the surface disturbances and the immediate incomprehension. The best sentences should lose information at a relatively constant rate. There should be no ecstatic moments of recognition.”
