"Not A Cornfield" is a project (2005) by Artist Lauren Bon. It's a living sculpture in the form of a field of corn east of Downtown Los Angeles. The site - historically a train yard - is in between two busy streets, with the hills of Chinatown on one side, and a warehouse no-mans land on the other.

By bringing attention to the site throughout the "Not A Cornfield" process, Bon hopes to rise questions about the nature of urban public space; whose history would a historical park in the city center actually describe, and about the politics of land use and it's incumbent inequities.

What is your view on the coronavirus?


Koert van Mensvoort: The virus makes us aware of other lifeforms with other perspectives, desires and needs. It also teaches us that we are one humanity. These viral invaders don’t discriminate on the basis of nationality, race, income, social status, political or sexual preference. We are together and must work together to overcome. Stay safe.
