UPDATE: Apparently this chick is claiming that it was not a hoax and Yale is only claiming that to distance themselves from the press backlash. Yale, on the other hand, claims that it is performance art and that her denial is part of the performance. In fact, she told them that she would deny it. Go flippin’ figure.

So this turned out to be a big tasteless hoax. Girl at Yale claims her senior art project is this: she artificially inseminates herself and then proceeds to cause herself to miscarry (read: abort) many times, records the process on video and keeps all the blood and detritus, then makes an “art exhibit” with the video and blood and whatnot.

I still believe my post on my work blog stands, hoax or not.
