Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby: Here is Everything

by Anneka Herre

Vdrome, Dec 2015, pp. 1-4

Interview with Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby in which they discuss their video Here is Everything. Situating this work in distinction from the self-satirizing and self-doubting mode of their earlier videos, the two discuss how they had a desire to make more grandiose claims, as well as a growing confidence in personal voice that resulted in the video being more didactic in its address. The topic of beauty seeping into their work over time as a result of acquiring more tools and skills is also discussed.
