Dabek, Ryszard

Ryszard Dabek is an artist and academic who has exhibited both nationally and internationally. He is currently a lecturer in the Film & Digital Art Department at Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney. His artistic practice encompasses a number of forms and mediums including photography, video, sound, and interactive media. These imaging and dissemination technologies are used to posit a fluid, expanded field of inquiry where the photographic image is often used as a departure point. Much of Dabek’s recent research coalesces around ideas engaged with the recent past and in particular the idea of a present haunted by the spectral vestiges of Modernity.
