大多数学生都担心老师的后脑勺上长眼睛盯着自己,可是美国纽约大学摄影系伊拉克裔教授瓦法•比拉尔日前却提出一个名为“第三只眼”的惊人创意未来数周内他将通过手术在自己的后脑勺中植入一个拇指大小的摄像头,每隔一分钟拍摄一张照片。

“第三只眼”计划应卡塔尔首都多哈市马沙夫博物馆委托,作为“阿拉伯现代艺术”展览的一部分。该博物馆将于下月正式开放。比拉尔用“后眼”所拍摄的照片首先被输入数据库存,然后通过网络源源不断地实时传送至万里之外的多哈市马沙夫博物馆展出。据主办方马沙夫博物馆介绍,“第三只眼”计划的主题是反映“时间的不可存取性,以前记忆和经验的不可捕捉性”。该展览历时半年,时间从今年12月至明年5月。

Wafaa Bilal, a visual artist widely recognized for his interactive and performance pieces, had a small digital camera implanted in the back of his head — all in the name of art.

A New York University arts professor might not have eyes on the back of his head, but he's coming pretty close. Wafaa Bilal, a visual artist widely recognized for his interactive and performance pieces, had a small digital camera implanted in the back of his head — all in the name of art.

Bilal said Tuesday that he underwent the procedure for an art project that was commissioned by a new museum in Doha, Qatar, in the Arab Gulf.

Titled "The 3rd I," it is one of 23 contemporary works commissioned for the opening of the Mathaf: Arab Museum of Modern Art on Dec. 30. The exhibition is entitled "Told/Untold/Retold."

"I am going about my daily life as I did before the procedure," the Iraqi-born artist said in a statement.

Bilal, who is teaching three courses this semester at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, will wear the camera for one year. It is 2 inches in diameter and less than an inch thick.

The project will raise "important social, aesthetic, political, technological and artistic questions," he said.

He declined to say when the camera was implanted or other details of the art installation, saying it "will be revealed to the public as part of the museum preview on Dec. 15" and on a website to be launched on the same day, http://www.3rdi.me.

He said he chose to have it put in the back of the head as an allegorical statement about the things we don't see and leave behind.

How it all fits together is still a bit of a mystery.

The camera will capture his everyday activities at one-minute intervals 24-hours a day and then be transmitted to monitors at the museum, said curators Sam Bardaouil and Till Fellrath of Art Reoriented, who commissioned Bilal on behalf of the museum.

"He doesn't have to alter his lifestyle or what he does. In principal, he's moving on with his life," Bardaouil told The Associated Press from Doha. "It will be a three-dimensional, real space-and-time experience. Once the piece is revealed, you'll realize that the camera is only one aspect of the work and there are aspects as important that will be experienced."

Bilal said "The 3rd I" builds on his other body of work that combines performance art, digital and body art and photography "into a unique conceptual piece."
