A necessary act of Artistic Civil Disobedience was a part of this project's journey.
There are risks and consequences.
RISK: Trust a Member of Society Paid by the Government to Protect the Vulnerable's Rights.
Confidential information was sent to the investigative loop to aide the investigation. It was a risk of trust, that these people would use the information to aide the investigation.
We were betrayed by those we trusted.
CONSEQUENCE: Miele received a Cease & Desist letter.
Miele is a pacifist, and this felt like an act of war against her vulnerable art heart, and is processing the impact through art, while attempting to find an organization that will provide legal counsel: not easy, AT ALL, when you live paycheck to paycheck and can't afford an attorney.
