Wafaa Bilal, An Iraqi-born artist and an Assistant Arts Professor at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts He is famously known for his interacvtive works on-line which engages his audience but one really fascinating thing about him is that he a camera surgically implanted onto the back of his head, all this for a project he calls, 3rdi. This camera feeds back to his website 24/7 all live footage, which communicates the sense of surveillance and the things we leave behind us, un-noticed.

In 2007, in a chicago gallery bibal set up an interactive feature where the user may take control of a paintball gun over the web and use it to fire at Bilal himself. He has done so many fascinating projects and I really feel that it is worth giving his website a look and you can even tune into the cam on the back of his head!
