This Unruly: a repository of video cut-ups

The cut-up video remix subcategory describes clips, which have generally been produced as a critique of particular political or social circumstances and whose form tends to be more experimental in nature.

Works within this category often use stock/archival footage, especially clips which are very earnest (and according to modern sensibilities, appears naive and unconvincing solemn).

Creator: Martin Arnold (1998). Alone. Life Wastes Andy Hardy.

In Martin Arnold's "Alone. Life Wastes Andy Hardy" (1998) the naïvity of a mother and son's relationship played by Fay Holden and Mickey Rooney in the 1940 film "Strike Up The Band" is transformed through backwards-and-forwards frame shuttling so that their interactions become overtly sexualised and Oedipal.
