Talk by Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby

May 29, 2008



Grand Luxe Hall, Western Front


7:00 p.m.


As part of their artist residency, Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby gave an artist talk in the Grand Luxe Hall.

During their presentation, the artists discussed the poster project they were developing while in residence—an artist multiple in the form of a large poster that explored the relationship between video art and printed matter.

The presentation addressed the implications of ever changing video information captured through their use of webcams, and what becomes of it when separated from technologies required for a non-static engagement. They also explored questions relating to what happens when video is moved out of time-based environments like installation and single channel screenings, and what it means to arrest or capture a fragment of that which is ever-shifting in a solid state.

Their talk closed with a question and answer session. 

Video documentation is available upon request.
