Weird Art: Iraqi implants camera in head

bilal-blog

He now looks like Neo from the Matrix. Iraqi-born artist and NYU Professor Wafaa Bilal had a digital camera surgically implanted in the back of his head for a project commissioned by the new museum of modern Arab art in Qatar.

The camera will take one picture every minute of every day for a year and transmit the images live to monitors at the museum in Doha.

Respect, Wafaa. I would not be able to deal with that kind of privacy invasion. Long trips to the toilet, random hookups and laid back partying just seem way out of the question at this point.
