Iraqi-born artist Wafaa Bilal takes a break from chatting with people on the internet while at his interactive art exhibit at an art gallery in Chicago June 1, 2007. In his latest project called "Domestic Tension", Bilal wants to convey to people all over the world, what its like to live in a war zone. People 24 hours a day, can chat with Bilal while watching him via a webcam and even take a shot at him with a paintball gun. Bilal, who was arrested by former Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein's regime for his artwork and because he refused to join the Iraqi army, wound up in a Saudi Arabian refugee camp before gaining asylum in the United States.
