porn and corn

what's a public art project without accusations of pornography? the cornfields inspire yet another "but is it art?" controversy - with one artist/pornographer claiming he was kicked out of the cornfields - he claims art, the lapd claims porn. hard to tell from the article who's got the more legitimate claim. he may just be a guy in the wrong place at the wrong time: "Landy said he had been falsely blamed after Not a Cornfield employees found a section of cornstalks flattened and condoms scattered around the ground." after one of the lectures a few weeks ago, one of the organizers mentioned there had been a "wiccan orgy" of about a dozen women that week. there's just something about tall stalks of corn that seems to inspire some midnight lovin'. oh - again - the most unintentionally hilarious detail in the story:

Landy disputed that suggestion when he returned to the field Thursday with a friend, Hollywood musician Danny Shorago, to do more filming. Shorago was clad in what he called "mutant lounge-wear" — a red-spattered tuxedo outfitted with a fake pig's snout.
sounds like just another saturday night on hollywood blvd.

This story exposes the underside we have all been wondering about in the "Not" project. It shows a bunker mentality within the group that talks about 'community' while wishing to decide who is or is not a member. This guy wasn't involved in the nudity incident but was tarred because he is an artist with his own agenda.

It comes to this; the whole thing is a public relations effort, unpredictable artists not welcome, not understood and not recognized.

How unintentionally hilarious that you find this "unintentionally hilarious."
