Headcam Wafaa Bilal gets a titanium implant that will attach a surveillance camera to the back of his head. via YouTube All artists face rejection at some point in their careers, and Wafaa Bilal-the NYU professor and artist who had a camera implanted in the back of his head in December-is no exception. Bilal underwent surgery on Friday to have part of the camera apparatus removed after his body rejected one of three titanium posts implanted in his head. Until he can figure out a different configuration (and until his wound heals) Bilal is continuing his project by tying the camera to the back of his neck.
