Book recommended by Chris Burnett.

Even without obvious connections to the city as subject, the book masterfully lays out an encyclopaedia of scanning effects. The visual tropes of scanning seem to take on a life of their own as visual figures in constant metamorphosis.

This book is part of Books and the City Symposium which took place in Maastricht, the Netherlands, from 22–24 June 2016. Organised by Maastricht University, NL, the Van Eyck Academie, NL, and the University of Canterbury, NZ.
