Silo Spring 2011 :: Michael Candy

In the lead up to Silo’s Spring 2011 Mixtape Launch tomorrow night at Jugglers ArtSpace, the gang here at thought it would be good to feature some of the artists that will be exhibiting as part of our Tunnel Artshow.

Michael Candy

Michael Candy is an artist who is interested in kinetics and incorporating natural and organic materiels such as wood, moss and vegetables with man-made materials to explore the relationship between technology and nature.

Strutten is very excited to have Michael showcasing some of his work.


  Michael Candy 



Daytime job:

  Centerlink funded sleep research.

Where can we see your work on the internets?

If you weren’t an artist, what would you be?

 a compulsive masturbator

What/who inspires you?

Probably anything industrial, i could stare at machinery on construction sites with more intrigue than a 6yr old who just discovered Tonka.

Favourite website of the moment (doesn’t have to be art related):

Favourite place in Brisbane that motivates you to work on your art?

Probably the university workshop, such a great range of inspiring ideas and projects always happening in there its hard not to get excited.

How would you describe the Brisbane art scene?

The Brisbane art scene is steadily growing, and so is the interest from the general public.
Its an exciting time to be involved with the arts in Brisbane!

What’s next for you?

Hopefully a holiday
