"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.
