monument of dirt, palings, lettuce
A transient monument to nothing in particular was constructed from dirt, fence palings and iceberg lettuce. The “shrine” lasted briefly during the Mt Penang Garden Festival of 2001. Afterwards, the palings were recycled, the dirt was returned to its hole and the lettuce, which was mostly still edible, was dropped off at an inner Sydney hostel for the homeless.
