NPR : Iraqi Artist Makes a Point with Virtual Paintballs

All Things Considered, June 1, 2007 · Iraqi artist Wafaa Bilal, who left his country in 1992 but still has family there, wanted to bring into sharp focus what it's like to be constantly worried about personal safety. So he moved into a gallery in Chicago and invited computer users across the country to shoot paintballs at him — through the Internet. Chicago Public Radio's Sam Hudzik paid Bilal a visit as his 42 days of self-imposed confinement draw to a close.

Here's the site if you want to shoot some paintballs.
