"The relaxation of the rigours of structural filmmaking in [Joyce] Wieland's films is indicated in the way her work often includes anecdotes, symbols and sentimental references. More important still is her use of diverse materials, including representational imagery, written texts and surface infractions—patterns created by perforating the film."
