11.5 FAQ5 - The Third I

CNN reports on 12/2/2010:

* A New York University Professor [Wafaa Bilal] installed a thumb-sized camera in back of his head for art exhibit
* Iraqi born photography professor had the procedure done at a piercing studio last month
* The camera will take a single snap-shot each minute of everyday activities for one year

This is an implanted mini-camera, no less. Incredibly, the procedure was done at a "piercing studio", an accident, in many forms, waiting to happen. It also begs the question: "why not a head-mounted camera":

Just point it the other way?

Tentative answer: An artist's mind works differently from yours and mine?

I look forward to seeing his results!

So do I.

WSJ reports: "Bilal was commissioned to implant the camera for the period of one year by a new museum in Qatar. The museum, Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art, will also display a live stream of the photos when it opens Dec. 30 [2010]".

We'll know soon enough.
