This Unruly: a repository of video cut-ups

The illustration video remix subcategory describes clips, which use appropriated footage as a visual accompaniment to a primarily audio (or text) message.

Music videos are the most obvious example here where the music track takes centre stage, supported by imagery that illustrates or that fulfils a metaphorical function in terms of interpreting and translating ideas, which are present in the music.

This clip ostensibly functions as a formal exercise in picture and sound editing (centring on the technique of cutting on the beat). While this is the case, it's hard to dismiss the obvious inference caused by linking the traditional Israeli song Hava Nagila with violent scenes of Batman's archenemy The Joker. Despite this and the promise made through its high-energy cutting, the clip's (apparent) critical message remains indistinct and underdeveloped. (Perkins. S, 2017)
