Some students joke that their teachers have eyes in the backs of their heads. A New York University professor is now closer to that reality, having had a camera surgically implanted into the back of his cranium. A New York University professor is now closer to that reality, having had a camera surgically implanted into the back of his cranium.

Wafaa Bilal, an Iraqi born photography professor at the university’s Tisch School of the Arts, had the procedure done at a piercing studio last month for an art project commissioned by a museum in Doha, Qatar, he said. « This will expose the unspoken conditions we face, » Bilal said Thursday. « A project like this is meant to establish a dialogue about surveillance. »

The project is called « The 3rd I, » and will make use of the posterior camera by taking a snap-shot photographs each minute of Bilal’s everyday activities for one year, he said. [CNN]

Ce professeur NewYorkais s’est fait greffer un dispositif à l’arrière de son crâne sur lequel il peut brancher une caméra et disposer réellement d’un troisième œil. Il dit que c’est pour lancer un débat sur la surveillance. c’est vrai qu’il donne de sa personne. « The 3rd I » c’est le nom de son installation et c’est aussi fascinant que repoussant à regarder.Un système de positionnement GPS permet de le localiser sur une carte en temps réel. Les images seront diffusés dans un musée et sur son site : www.3rdi.me.
