Excerpt from the full article: Many of the artists included in The Book: A Contemporary View Exhibition at Towson University address the book's current anachronistic status and present differing views on the future of the book as we know it. Louise Levergneux's City Shields and the accompanying video A Look at City Shields, document the artist's travels in a hybrid format which addresses digital methods of documentation. As Levergneux travels throughout the US, Canada, and Scotland, she walks the city streets and photographs its manhole covers to remember each journey. Even the accompanying DVD also resembles a manhole cover, blurring the boundaries between the tactile and digital.
