I posted it in the other thread too
I posted all of this stuff on the Birth Without Fear support group on FB to see if any of the ladies could help report pics (its a group of over 3000 moms) and one lady wrote this to the PR place where the chick works
Svea-------------------This is the letter I just sent to the PR agency that represents her workplace. Somebody's getting fired...
I am working on a piece for Role/Reboot magazine (http://www.rolereboot.org/
) about maternal health and am hoping to include some comments from Kern Studios about its employment of netart media artist Alexandria Mccrosky. It is my understanding that Kern Studios has employed Mccrosky for a number of years and has been instrumental in developing her artistic practice (she has no formal artistic training, and holds a BA in Anthroplogy). As you may be aware, her recent piece 'Still Born in the USA' includes images of deceased infants -- images which were taken without permission from online support groups for grieving mothers. These images are overlayed with cutesy slogans ('ha ha ha!', 'so perfect!') and so on. As you can imagine, this work has sparked a major outcry from women's rights groups around the country -- and a series of heartbroken blog posts from the mothers themselves.
I am hoping that Kern Studios can tell me their take on this work (which can be found at duxx.thisket.com). The piece I am working on includes an interview with Christy Turlington (former model, now founder of the 'Every Mother Counts' initiative), and we are hoping that it gains some further media traction. I look forward to hearing your take on this issue.
