Conceptual artist Wafaa Bilal plans to implant a camera in the back of head for a year, broadcasting images at one-minute intervals to a museum in Qatar which commissioned the work. Bilal, a photography professor at New York University, has the school’s administration concerned over students’ privacy. Bilal’s controversial past work has often traded in notions of technology, the body and wartime anxiety having hacked himself into a video game as a suicide bomber, invited gallery visitors to shoot him remotely with a paintball gun, and tattooing a map of Iraq War casualties on his back.
