Disturbing Senior Art Project

This may be the most disgusting and disturbing news article I've ever read.

A Yale student who claims she artificially inseminated herself "as often as possible" and then took drugs to induce miscarriages for her senior art project says she will showcase the stomach-turning display next week — complete with her own blood samples and videos from the terminated possible pregnancies.

The story of art major Aliza Shvarts' upcoming exhibit, which the Yale Daily News broke Thursday, has sparked widespread disgust and outrage.

"It’s clearly depraved. I think the poor woman has got some major mental problems," said National Right to Life Committee President Wanda Franz. "She’s a serial killer. This is just a horrible thought."

Critics on campus have said the display sounds like a shock-and-awe look at the highly sensitive issue of abortion and called it a sick stunt to get attention. The abortion-rights group NARAL Pro-Choice America also condemned the exhibit.

"This 'project' is offensive and insensitive to the women who have suffered the heartbreak of miscarriage," said NARAL's communication director Ted Miller in a statement.

But Shvarts said the goal of the project is to encourage debate and discussion about the connection between art and the human body.

"I hope it inspires some sort of discourse," Shvarts, whose age was withheld, told Yale's newspaper. "Sure, some people will be upset with the message and will not agree with it, but it's not the intention of the piece to scandalize anyone."


Yea, bullshit! There's no way anyone could be this clueless.


The exhibit will be on public display from April 22 to May 1 at Yale's Holcombe T. Green Jr. Hall. Shvarts will be honored at a reception April 25.


UPDATE

Turns out this is a "hoax" that she's attempting to pass off as "performance art."

http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5hvahaxQa3oRSJqBeqVTY3oJlGJMQD903VVSO0

I don't really care that it's a hoax. Just the idea of doing this is almost as bad as actually doing it. From the article:


Groups both for and against abortion rights expressed outrage over the affair.

Ted Miller, a spokesman for NARAL Pro-Choice America, called the concept offensive and "not a constructive addition to the debate over reproductive rights."

Peter Wolfgang, executive director of the Family Institute of Connecticut, an anti-abortion group, said his anger was not mitigated by the fact that Shvarts was never pregnant.

"I'm astounded by this woman's callousness," he said. "There are thousands of women in this country who are dealing with the pain of having had an abortion, with the trauma of having suffered a miscarriage. For her to make light of that for her own purposes is just beyond words."


I also wonder if this means that people can perform other hoaxes, like calling in bomb threats, and call that performance art too?

UPDATE2

Ok, so now the student is claiming this isn't a hoax.

But Shvarts reiterated Thursday that she repeatedly use a needleless syringe to insert semen into herself. At the end of her menstrual cycle, she took abortifacient herbs to induce bleeding, she said. She said she does not know whether or not she was ever pregnant.

.No one can say with 100-percent certainty that anything in the piece did or did not happen,. Shvarts said, .because the nature of the piece is that it did not consist of certainties..

This afternoon, Shvarts showed the News footage from tapes she plans to play at the exhibit. The tapes depict Shvarts . sometimes naked, sometimes clothed . alone in a shower stall bleeding into a cup.


Stupid attention ho.



I agree completely! It is like yelling "FIRE!" when there is no fire! It is ridiculous to pass this off as so called "Art"

Typical idiot, lol.

I guess simple sentences aren't your thing, but then again seeing how a bigot such as, you might be to busy beating off to underage girls:



Like I said, if you wish to further embarrass yourself, drop me a message or perhaps make your own thread for this; 'cause surely publicly admitting you like to molest yourself to children isn't good for your image.



Typical faggot, lol.

whats wrong with girls? oh wait.. that's right... you're into underage boys.. my fault queer, seeing as how you're a group called "queenies", as if you couldn't get any uglier I saw that group with the monkey picture... now we all know you're a george bush look-a-like. ouch....no really dam bro no wonder all you uploaded was a queer flower power picture.

and i thought you couldn't get any uglier: "u mean it messes up ur braces?"

AHAHAHA!!! the lil monkey has braces!!!! bro seriously, no wonder you really didn't want to upload your picture. i actually feel sorry for you now, you're fat, ugly, look like a monkey, have crooked teeth, duling eyes, uneducated, anti-social, you have no friends in real life and let alone on crunchyroll. you only have 4 friends who don't even comment you anymore.

you're in two groups that show how gay and ugly you are. you have 1 flower power picture that shows your suck ass key generated photoshop skills. you have shit comments, you have a shit ranking. you have shit cr points. we know now that your are in fact an ugly piece of shit loser for sure, no doubt now.
i mean cmon, you certainly failed to impress me with your excuses to your faggotry.

you're also a narutard considering how you named your photobucket username "kakashi_somethingfagot" epic lols, i must say, wow you sir are the unique lil monkey.

you have 213 cr points which means not only do you have a suck bawls rep in the real world, your rep on cr is as gay.

you have a picture of a pope on your avatar which is the crappiest photoshop editing i have ever seen in my life, but for a monkey that's pretty decent. and a pope now? cmon i thought you were athiest. hmmm.... lies much?

you only have 51 profile views which means no one really gives a fuck about you, no one really wants to read your shitty "about me". you're as useless to the crunchy community as you are to the real world.

you also didn't quote my last reply because you were too scared i would reply back, its a good thing i check back on these forums, haha its okay, we all know i burned you hard as hell in the past replies. so i understand if you're punkn out. you're also scared of being publicly humiliated by me because you fail at doing it to me, which is why you always beg me to send you some "private messages" ^^

it says you're a typical boy. yea more like typical queer. says you're into video games... shooters by choice? please play a real game like call of duty 4, halo 3, gears... not some lame ass resident evil and dora the explorer adventures.

you also didn't reply to my P.S. back then, which confirms that you are in fact a broke ass. sigh, little peasants of society, honestly how will your dead grandma n granpa redeem the family name after getting butt fucked by nazis, when you're here fagging up your name.

you seem to fail to understand that your attempts to "humiliate or embarass" me will not work. i actually have no idea why you still try, but if you want to dig yourself a deep hole, please do reply back and please make your next insulting more entertaining for everyone and not something full of lies and hypocrisy, which is basically what you are. g' 'ay to you good sir. xD

P.S. make sure you reply to each an every paragraph, please i do want to see all your excuses to what i just said. if not, then it further proves your faggotry. heh ^^




I'm not trying to get mixed into this whole "war of wits" thing going on here, but I find it interesting that in some ED threads you post simple one-lined posts, or sometimes even just "lol," yet you put so much thought into insulting some random guy over the internet who won't ever effect your life in anyway. I kinda wish you would put that much effort into contributing to thread topics, but then again I didn't read this post so I can't really say if that would be a good thing. Again I'm not trying to insult you or anything.

interesting?? i find it irritating actually.. why can't those two use friggin private messages instead? >_< friggin polluting the threads.. jeez

aanyway.. my thought on the topic: ya know what? who even cares if she actually did kill her own babies.. it's her body and she can do whatever she likes to it. Okay maybe that's too far to say. I'm not really a supporter of homicide acts. But seriously.. sometimes the governments, the spca, the abortion right society or whatever.. they meddle too much into people's private life.

This isn't really private since it's related to a public art display. Obviously the girl is just trying to get her 15 minutes of fame.

ugh... guys be open minded for once... such underaged and undeveloped peasants on cr nowadays..


Kind of a turn off knowing your waiting for me to acknowledge your existence. But hey, I rather not post pictures of myself on a site where the majority of posters are teenage boys, but that's your thing~

Besides, I'm sure you befriending random faggots on the internet sure makes you popular, I rather myself avoid relying on imaginary beings to help myself feel wanted.

How about you go back to the Flipside now? Considering how you're from a descent of incestuous love (all rights to Adam and Eve here Catholic boy), I wouldn't expect any logic to get past your mental defects.


Cheers to that "mistake".
PS: How’s that Hello Kitty Cat CD player treating you love? Also, underaged peasants? I'm sure they're not active members of the Lolicon society such as yourself. Now would you pleeeeease, stop trying to push a bible on me you dickwipe?




lol finally, and how come u didnt reply to my comment back at the other forum. ^^


Locked thread.

[quoteluls its okay bro, british columbians tend to choke more than the other races.


I didn't know a province constitued a race.


and when you said "kind of a turn off" that confirmed your gayness. i dunno any guy that says that to a guy, you sir are a complete homo, but thats good since you're an athiest you won't go to hell for being a fag.


I figured since you've been constantly battering on talks of "Choking" and "Dicks", I might throw you a term you're familiar hearing from guys.



Cheers to your mistake? well okay you're the first that celebrated your life of faggotry and uglyness. you're pretty unique actually, i never met a fag quite like yourself, please do elaborate on your next excuse.

Hello Kitty Cat CD? underaged peasants? Lolicon society? sounds like you had a rough night of anal at snyder. ^^


Funny, everything I said can be directly linked from your profile.

Cheers mate. However, if you insist on being a bigot, how about you just send me a private message instead of clogging more threads?



Wow, please stop polluting the threads with your lame trolling. Seriously. We don't need losers like you.

Wow that is quite disturbing indeed. Whats even more disturbing is that a woman who got into Yale wants to be a fucking idiot and throw it all away to get her 15 minutes of sickening fame. If you're going to fucking bust your ass and get into an Ivy League College like Yale, WHY THE FUCK WOULD YOU THROW IT AWAY!?

Its people like this that people think abortion is wrong and is being abused by others.

I would like to see this exhibit, as it is one that is unlikely to duplicated. I do not see why you are upset. as these were just fetuses. It is not like they were sentient humans.


Umm just because they were fetuses doesn't mean that they were not living organisms. As you already know the cell is the basic structure of all LIVING things. That is why there is so much controversy over stem cell research (but now they are actually trying to use skin cell to make stem cells or something like that) What this woman did was sick and Im all about expressing yourself and everything but this is idiotic. She could have had some serious complications and she could have permanently damaged her uterus so that she may never be able to bear another child. She has absolutely no morals....those fetuses were her children, I think that she need some psychiatric help ASAP. And its people like her who make the rest of us dislike abortions so much.

im not pro life or pro choice whatever on abortion. but i think that the fact that she even if she didnt know she was pregnant, she didnt really care that she could have been killing a bunch of litle babies and doesnt show any remorse is just wrong. and i know art is whatever you can get away with and all that, and i agree with that, but there is a point where you have to draw the line; like when youre playing with other peoples lives. its her body yeah, but shes not the only one being affected. what about her parents (pkay maybe they dont care, i dont know them)? and all the people at yale who have to work hard to deal with the press?? and all the people who get abortions for legitimate reasons like rape or health problems are going to get persecuted even more becuase people will compare them to this girl?? and her roommate (if she has one) who had to listen to her undergo miscarriages once month?? why didnt she think about them??

That is NOT art. it is stupid, even nowdays when almost anything can be passed as art (preformances anyone?). Well, she got the attention, its up to her how is she going to use it. But the way she did it, its horrible!

discourse on abortion has been going on for ages. her 'work' is just repulsive and redundant.
