by Chris Meigh-Andrews

A History of Video Art, 2006, pp. 165-170

This chapter discusses the work of video artists in the 70's and 80's whose work explores picture and sound montage as opposed to the 'real time' approach that earlier artists took.

In Keeping Marlene out of the Picture (1973), Cameron's subject Marlene is shown briefly entering an exiting a room. The piece includes a variety of jump cuts, quick edits and repeat edits.
