Sam Jury. Nothing Is Lost - installation at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin, 2010.

Description:
Video installation that explores the gap between the 'suspended' digital document and actual physical presence. The video in this piece combines moving image with photographic stills - footage of slow moving heads melded with already manipulated photographs (some of which derived from digital images projected onto a sculptural form of a blank head). The result is an identity-less, ‘every-person’ or hybrid. The movement of the video held within the static framework of both the photography and the Plexiglass form creates a sense of claustrophobia depicting an almost stolid character trapped in a fabricated context. Nothing is Lost is both alluring and repellent - an exaggeration of the heavily doctored portrayals of women in the mass media – society’s contemporary portraits.
