Lin is known for her ethnographic approach to art-making alongside crude fantasy scenes. The post-colonial critique behind Lin's work can be seen in her piece, Dildos (Corn Hill, Queen Victoria, Bird in Space) first shown at a solo show at Francois Ghebaly Gallery. Here, dildos encased in bell jars are made from molds of corn and are either pink, white, or black-hyperbolic "skin tones".
