Events Detail

Technological Intervention

Kathmandu Triennale (KT) cordially invites you to another of our outreach programs - "Technological Intervention: A Presentation by Michael Candy" (Australia), in collaboration with Yantra, Asialink, and Australia Council for the Arts.

Join Candy, a skilled practitioner in new media arts and technologies, who transfuses technology into artworks with social, ecological, economic, and environmental issues. Candy has created a variety of robots, installations, and interventions that use physical technologies at their core. Skills, resources, and ethics will be the primary topics of exchange as Candy hopes to inspire or incite the possibilities of new media arts in the presentation, alongside presenting his work, the development of his practice and skill to date in a visual and didactic discussion.

Candy uses physical technologies to impart systems theory on ecology and sociology. From making scale replicas of metamorphosis to remotely operated protest devices installed within the G20 exclusion zone, his devices empower and translate closed systems into tangible medium: a flooding river is given a voice, a goldfish is at the mercy of a cocktail party, colours shine never visible, synthesizers are controlled by an active volcano and in the Amazon mercury vapor rises above a golden statue in an illegal mining town. A myriad of encounters both ecological and political, giving rise to contrasts as paradoxes become diluted.

You can view more of his artworks and biography at www.michaelcandy.com
