PRECOG triggers Uncanny Valley type unease as the organic and inorganic world collide. We are forced to recognize something altogether familiar, yet eerily menacing, and cannot help but ponder if we are gazing at an ancestor of our future demise. A combination of custom fabricated and found object construction, PRECOG features an embedded Ipod Nano which projects subtle video (or visions) onto the lenses of each of the three eyes. The full color source video is mechanically broken down into the three additive primary colors. (RedGreenBlue)
Another sublime creation from Christopher Conte entitled Scarlett, was featured in the show "Conjoined", curated by Chet Zar, at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, California. Christopher's work has a (literal) polish and finish that makes them look like fully functional production pieces that one might expect to see wandering around in search of some fresh oil... This may explain why he has sold every piece he has ever made.
