Cryptid is a 2.4 metre kinematic walking sculpture.

A monumental robotic light sculpture, Cryptid exists as a vibrant anomoly in contrast to contemporary automata, sharing a presence both radiant and reserved. 

Michael Candy uses physical technologies to impart systems on ecology and society. Candy has been involved in many international and local projects and exhibitions, notably: The Kathmandu Triennale (Kathmandu, Nepal), Pratt Manhattan Gallery (NYC, USA), The Forum of Sensory Motion (Athens, Greece), The Instrument Builders Project + Hackteria Lab (Yogyakarta, Indonesia) and Hawapi (Huepetuhe, Peru). In 2015, Michael won the WRO Award as part of the 16th Media Art biennale in Poland and later Prix Cube (Paris, France) with Big Dipper.
