Michael Candy uses physical technologies to impart systems theory on ecology and sociology. His artworks empower and translate closed systems into tangible medium: a flooding river is given a voice; a goldfish held ransom to a cocktail party; and synthesizers become controlled by the environment atop an active volcano. A myriad of ecological and political encounters give rise to contrasts as paradoxes become diluted. In 2016 Michael traveled to Kathmandu to work with the Robotics Association of Nepal, in a structured series of cybernetic experiments and workshops exploring humanity’s spiritual synergy with technology.
