Well of course it was a Hoax. Wasn’t that obvious?

The whole thing had hoax written all over it. But I assure you that my random interjected quotes were not hoaxes. At any rate we all now know who she is which may or may be part of the point. But whether hoax or reality what remains is the conceptual intent which is clearly to stir up some controversy.

Ms. Shvarts is engaged in performance art. Her art project includes visual representations, a press release and other narrative materials. She stated to three senior Yale University officials today, including two deans, that she did not impregnate herself and that she did not induce any miscarriages. The entire project is an art piece, a creative fiction designed to draw attention to the ambiguity surrounding form and function of a woman’s body.

She is an artist and has the right to express herself through performance art.

Had these acts been real, they would have violated basic ethical standards and raised serious mental and physical health concerns.

  1. These presentations do not qualify as art, according to my definition. Art is craftmanship that expresses a spiritual dimension. This event is a political statement and it certainly is within the realm of the spiritual, but it lacks any developed craft. Without developed craft there can be no art. Not all expression is art. We have used the term art as a simile so much that it has lost its true meaning.
