A photography professor at New York University is going to have a camera implanted in the back of his head for his next project, according to reports.
Wafaa Bilal, an Iraqi-born assistant professor in the photography and imaging department of NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, has plans to undergo surgery to implant the camera in the next few weeks, the Wall Street Journal reported.
The camera would transmit a live stream of images to visitors of a new museum in Qatar. The camera will be programmed to take pictures at one-minute intervals for one year, the newspaper reported.
In 2008, Bilal created a computer-based work called Virtual Jihadi, a modified version of the game Quest for Bush, an already hacked version of the game Quest for Saddam. Bilal cast himself as a suicide-bomber in the game whose goal is to hunt then-U.S. president George W. Bush.
