Amy Karle’s mission is to positively impact others, raise consciousness and contribute to social, political, and technical development by making and sharing her work. As an artist and designer, Karle is also a provocateur and a futurist, leveraging new technologies to create art that catalytically examines material and spiritual aspects of life and open minds to future visions of how technology could be utilized to unlock human potential.

Amy Karle attended Alfred University and Cornell University, where she received degrees in Art and Design and Philosophy. Karle is co-founder of Conceptual Art Technologies and has shown work in 46 exhibitions worldwide. She is the inventor of registered active patents, service marks and trademarks in medical and technology categories.

Amy works as a full-time artist expressing experiences in visual forms, often designing technologies to improve the body and functions of the human in the process. She has been named one of the “Most Influential Women in 3D Printing” and her bioart work has contributed to the establishment of a new discipline in the art world.  The long-term goals of her work are to continue to pioneer in the bioart field and make contributions to healthcare and mind-body medicine in the process.

“I don’t actually make my work – my work makes itself. I use my Artwork as a means to express and study my own experience. I offer it to others as an experience to relate to.”
– Amy Karle
