Post Nasalism Evolves

A New York photographer, working with the Nasalism Institute at the University of Florida will have cameras surgically implanted in each of his nostrils and each of his forefingers as part of an art project commissioned by the Kleenex Tissue company in order to study the habit formerly known as “nosepicking,” The project, called “Nasal Freedom or Bad Habit?”will involve the cameras taking pictures whenever a forefinger enters a nostril at one-second intervals with the images being streamed to a computer database and then appearing in different sequences, some in real time, on monitors in an exhibition space in Sarasota, Florida.
