After completing a Master of Creative Media, Oscar Raby’s work has been part of festivals in Australia, Canada, USA, Mexico, the Netherlands and the UK.
The subject of Oscar’s research at RMIT was Portraiture in New Media, and he has since worked in projects at the Memory and Human Rights Museum in Chile as well as the National Gallery of Victoria.
These positions allowed him to explore how history is built and reconstructed by the curated narrative of institutions.
Oscar’s interest lies in using New Media to rearrange that narrative by facilitating the interaction between audience and artefacts.
It was Oscar’s graduating work, the Virtual Reality documentary Assent, which took off internationally and received the Audience Award for Cross-platform at Sheffield Doc/Fest 2014. Oscar was profiled by the Sydney Morning Herald on 15 May 2015.
