Prosthetist Makes Extraterrestrial Life from Limbs
Christopher Conte does not make a living as an artist. He pays his rent working as a prosthetist, designing and building artificial limbs for amputees. But after his 9-to-5 gig, the New York-based craftsman pours his knowledge of biomechanics, robotics, biology, and cyberpunk into intricate sculptures that could have sprung from the darkest recesses of H. P. Lovecraft's mind. In his latest series, Conte adapts terrestrial artifacts like dentist tools and watch innards to give pieces like Black Widow 1 (above) an extraterrestrial feel. Catch his newest exhibit, Cyberdine (a play on Cyberdyne Systems, the company from the Terminator movies that birthed SkyNet and, you know, took over the world) at the Last Rites Gallery in New York through June 29.
