Collection description

This research aimed to explore cafes, their working conditions, customer interactions and connection into daily routines, through multi-site ethnography. Overt video-assisted observation was used in 5 cafes across the UK in naturally organised settings. A video camera was left recording all day, with minimal disruption to the setting, in Cafe Nero (Manchester City Centre, Glasgow City Centre, and East Sheen, London), Offshore (Glasgow) and Spoon (Edinburgh). Data comprises of 24 videos of counters with 24 related images and an internet page of the data compiled, 20 videos of encounters with 20 related images and an internet page of the data compiled, and finally 37 videos of entering with 37 related images and an internet page of the data compiled. The data compiled on html. pages form a topically organised visual index of clips edited out from the longer footage, each one being an instance of some recognisable action or feature of the cafe. A total of 5 days in autumn 2003 were recorded.
