The New Freedom Founders: A Cure For Being Ordinary

Emily Vey Duke and Cooper Battersby

2004, 06:00 minutes, colour, English


"In the second episode, A Cure for Being Ordinary (aka Rafters), Cooper dishes a slightly sped up, high pitched monologue, lensed from two or three alternating vantages, about the worshiping of time, and his employment history at Harvey’s and the Scotia Bank." - Mike Hoolboom

A Cure For Being Ordinary is one segment of a musical video-art science-fiction trilogy entitled The New Freedom Founders.
