Porn in the Corn

The big news in LA today is of course the LA Times story about alleged pornography being shot in the Not A Cornfield art project, near Chinatown. Filmmaker Aaron Landy is refuting charges that he did anything other than a documentary on the art project, but according to the Times article, project general manager Adolfo Nodal and project artist Lauren Bon see it another way.

In a letter sent last week to Bon, Landy denied that he had created crop circles or shot pornography or nudes at the field. He complained that exhibition employees defamed him by telling families visiting the cornfield last week that he was "a porn guy" — an assertion that he said sparked an angry confrontation by one set of parents.

Landy said he had been falsely blamed after Not a Cornfield employees found a section of cornstalks flattened and condoms scattered around the ground.

Bon believes Landy is using the controversy "to feed his work." Yeah baby, feed that work! But Landy feels slighted by the whole thing, having his name drug through the mud and abused by the system. Abused repeatedly, over and over again until... oh yeah, that's the way daddy likes it. We'll be following this one closely.
