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