Summary The history of artists working with the moving image constitutes a substantial dialogue with technology. The ability to construct a complex visual narrative from disparate visual material is a developed skill that is the product of such an evolving dialogue with technique. The use of found and stolen images and their re-processing within such an ‘experimental’ practice can be experienced as transforming the originating material and emphasizing aspects previously hidden. Such ‘shock tactics’ performed on historic material will be examined in the film work of Peter Tscherkassky (Dreamwork Austria 10 minutes 2001) and Martin Arnold (Alone: Life Wastes Andy Hardy Austria 15 minutes 1998). The traumatic effect of these films will be examined in relation to Maya Deren’s ideas of ‘vertical’ and ‘horizontal’ editing and Chris Brewin’s neurological research into traumatic remembering which proposes the interaction between two types of memory systems: SAM (Situational Accessible Memory) and VAM (Verbally Accessible Memory).
