NYU Professor Removes Camera From Head Citing Pain

first_imgBack in November, we told you about Wafaa Bilal, a New York University professor visiting from Iraq who announced plans to have a small camera implanted in his head, beaming images to a museum in Qatar. The “3rd I” projector was “a comment on the inaccessibility of time, and the inability to capture memory, and experience.” It also ended up being a comment on the dangers of implanting foreign objects into the back of one’s head.Bilal, who had the camera installed in his head earlier this month, has since had it removed, due to the pain of his body rejecting the device. Despite the unexpected surgery, Bilal insists that he will press on. “I’m determined to continue with it,” Bilal said in an interview with an academic journal.last_img
