Anabolic Monument

Lauren Bon's sculpture Anabolic Monument is a thirty-meter-radius circle of decaying corn bales. The twenty-two bales were made from the remainder of corn plants grown on site and harvested during Ms Bon's artwork Not A Cornfield.

Located at the north side of the Los Angeles State Historic Park, this compost monument holds mystery and hosts numerous butterflies, hummingbirds, and bees in their odyssey toward nectar. It is tended by the Metabolic Studio in association with California State Parks.

    twenty years ago I lived the greater Los Angeles area - I'm glad to see the unused land being put to beneficial use.
