Artists are renowned for taking unusual steps to make great strides in their work, but one New York University professor is choosing to go above and beyond. Wafaa Bilal, a photography teacher, has chosen to implant a tiny camera into the back of his head to snap pictures for a year-long project.

The camera will be surgically implanted into the back of Bilal's skull. The procedure is scheduled to take place in the U.S., but it is unclear whether it has already occurred. Bilal, who has kept details about the project under wraps, will have a website dedicated to his work throughout the year.

"It will be a three-dimensional, real space-and-time experience," commissioner Sam Bardaouil told the Associated Press. "Once the piece is revealed, you'll realize that the camera is only one aspect of the work and there are aspects [that are] as important that will be experienced."

The goal of the project is to record Bilal's daily life through his "3rd I." Screenshots of the photos taken by the camera will be streamed on a Qatar gallery projection screen as they come in.

Artist jobs are projected to increase by 12 percent over the next eight years, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
