What if our controllers came alive? What if your Xbox controller ate your finger? What if your Nintendo Switch ate your sister’s finger? These are the types of questions that are evoked by Russian digital artist Ilya Lyakh in his Monster Play 19 series.

Lyakh was inspired by an unusual-looking Dual Shock 2 that resembled Frankenstein

Monster Play 19 is his own twist on that chance encounter with a Playstation controller.
