Tracing economic rhythms through visual and audio montage
This site has been assembled with the kind help and advice of David Wright, Web Developer, Social Sciences, The Open University. Andrew Rix of the Audio-Visual Department, The Open University gave his time and help generously in editing the video from which clips are taken, as did Wilf Eynon of the same Department who helped edit the minidisc tracks - both had to deal with amateurish quality video and sound. Thanks also to Dinah Moule for the loan of the Hi8 and to John Allen and Allan Cochrane for helpful comments on this 'paper'.
All photographs (with the exception of Slide 5), photomontages, video and sound recording are by Michael Pryke.
