Richard Dupont was born in New York in 1968. He lives and works in New York.In the 90s he attended Princeton University, Departments of Visual Art, Art and Archeology.
Dupont's multifaceted artistic practice includes installations, sculptures, drawings, reliefs, animations and prints. Dupont's work draws from a variety of themes and references, and engages the Postdigital in relation to the history of sculpture and the Body art, Process art and Systems art movements of the 1960s and 1970s.
Richard Dupont's work draws from a variety of themes and references, and has been described as "post-digital" and "post-internet". His work references the Body art, Process art and Systems art movements of the 1960s and 1970s. However, he uses 3D digital models of bodies and objects rather than things themselves. Dupont had his body scanned at a General Dynamics facility on The Wright Patterson Air Force Base in 2004, and has been working from these images, translated into both two and three dimensions, since then. An interest in the implications of biometric technologies underpins much of his work. Interested in the way we scrutinize ourselves, Dupont sees his reproductions of the human figure as a way to highlight the idea of "self-surveillance," and to note the way in which we map our lives through accumulating details.
