MARK DUSTIN
Mark Dustin is a Melbourne based artist from New Zealand who questions the value and veracity of images in media saturated environments. He explores  appropriated materials from art history, printmaking, and design. Using iPhones to photograph, design processes to manipulate, and outsourced commercial print production methods, he creates work that investigates the methodology of digital printmaking in an attempt to re-encode ambiguity and challenge authenticity. Pushing printing technologies beyond their protocols, Dustin merges digital and analogue, creating one of a kind works out of infinitely reproducible source material. Dustin is the Head of the Drawing & Printmaking Department at the Victorian College of the Arts, The
University of Melbourne. He holds a PhD in Fine Arts from the Elam School of Fine Arts in Auckland
