CNN Reports on Professor Wafaa Bilal’s Surgically Implanted Head Camera

CNN recently did a story on NYU professor Wafaa Bilal and the camera he had implanted on the back of his head. The video above gives you a glimpse into what it looks like and how the system works. Turns out it wasn’t a working camera that was permanently embedded into Bilal’s skull, but rather a baseplate to which the wired camera can be mounted magnetically.

    Let me cast one vote for Petapixel stop giving this guy free publicity.

    As evidenced on his web site, this is not photography related but the lurid actions of a disturbed individual who engages is self mutilation under the pretense of “art”.

    If this guy were really interested in artistically communicating a message and inspiring change on the issues he considers important, he could do so in countless equally or more sensational (and effective) ways. As it is, this is a person acting out their own insanity, and his story is perhaps better left ignored….if for the only out of deference to all the people needing, waiting or even without access to legitimate surgery.

    Thanks.
