This section brings together 12 contributions that collectively illustrate the many ways methods are continuously capturing and composing the world. In effect, capturing and composing are a set of what Celia Lury describes in the introduction to this handbook as ‘compound methods’: combinations of practices that are always interrupting (in) the now (and then) of the (historical and forthcoming) present. How capturing and composing interrupt is, in part, through the way they co-occur and co-act simultaneously. As we shall see, the recursion between the captured – the seized, taken, or recorded – and the composed is an important part of how the contributions in this section compound and interrupt knowing and being in the world. More specifically, it will be shown that capturing and composing bring together the epistemic and the ontic.
