Finally Wafaa Bilal mounts a camera to his head

NYU photography professor Wafaa Bilal displays the digital camera mount, which he has had implanted in the back of his head as part of a year-long art project, at his apartment in New York Dec. 7, 2010. The concept of the project, titled "The 3rd I", is based on the idea of capturing things subjectively, without the interference of a viewfinder, according to Bilal. For the next year, images from the camera will be streamed over the internet and at a museum in Qatar which commissioned this project. Jessica Rinaldi / Reuters

Rich Shulman says:I enjoy a kooky art project as much as the next person, but Bilal's plan to mount a camera on his head for a year raises some interesting ethical questions.

According to his profile in Wikipedia:
"The camera will remain operational for a one year; however, in an attempt to assuage privacy concerns, his university will require him to cover the camera while on campus."
