Bio: Lauren Bon

Originally trained as an architect, Lauren Bon has developed an art practice focusing on site-specific projects concerned with political and environmental justice. Her projects are intended to engage on a scale commensurate with society’s capacity to destroy.


In 2005 Bon established the Metabolic Studio to explore and increase the scope of her projects around an ongoing interest in connecting the land and water in the historic core of Los Angeles. Immense, multiyear works produced by Bon and the studio include Not a Cornfield (2005–6); Anabolic Monument (2006–13); FarmLab (2006–9); Under Spring (2006–13); AgH20 (2008–present), portions of which were shown at the George Eastman House, International Museum of Photography and Film, Rochester, New York, in 2013; Strawberry Flag (2009–10); One Hundred Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct (2013), video documentation of which is currently included in an exhibition at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions; and Bending the River Back into the City (2012–present).

One Hundred Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct

Metabolic Studio. Lauren Bon’s Metabolic Studio takes a multidisciplinary approach to developing new tools for urban living and city planning. The studio practices on physical and social brownfields—places that are incapable of supporting life. Since 2005 it has focused primarily on land and water use in the city of Los Angeles and by extension in the Intermountain West. Through working with local, state, and federal agencies, the studio counters an often ingrained systemic aversion to innovation. It is divided into three separate areas of practice: optics, sonics, and “a mano” (handmade).Type your paragraph here. For more information please visit http://www.metabolicstudio.org.

One Hundred Mules Walking the Los Angeles Aqueduct (Artist’s Cut, 2015) is a documentary of a journey, with a string of one hundred mules, that drew a line between Los Angeles and a source of its water in the Eastern Sierra.


This one-month meditation was undertaken by Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio to commemorate the centenary of the opening of the Los Angeles Aqueduct on Nov. 5, 2013. Mules were an important component of the labor force that made the building of the aqueduct possible. This artist action paid homage to the quiet dignity of the mule and the patient pace of its progress across the western epic landscape.
