"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.

I just forwarded this post to

Should men be able to give birth to children?

Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
