Thanks.  Pip once replied to a post with an example.  A student using a 
camcorder hits play when he intends to stop and stop when he intends to play.  
Imagine that going on for some time.  The result would be an example of what I 
have in mind - impossible to take much credit for!  And yet . . it could be 
done "on purpose," too.

Hi there,
Trying to follow your train of thought. Seems like the technique of film 
scratching might fall into the category of according to Hollywood, one should 
avoid scratching film, but because of particular obsessions, people do so. Paul 
Sharits, for one. And I would say his work expresses an impatience of sorts, 
and that the tactility of the scratches (even through visual perception) 
amplifies this immediacy. 
Maybe its a start:
