Master of Arts Tanya Toft
The New School
Tanya Toft recently received her double Master of Arts in Media Studies from The New School, NY, and in Modern Culture with profile in Urbanity and Aesthetics from Copenhagen University. Her research is focused on the interrelationship between new media art and the transformation of urban spaces and socio-spatial structures, which she explores in a combined artistic and strategic development framework.
In her master's thesis she provides a rethinking of urban cultural planning in the ’temporary’ cultural logics of the digital city and proposes the media-architectural event as a temporal, mediated catalyst for urban development and revitalization.
She has presented her research at The Transformation of the 21st Century City 2010; MediaCity 2010, The City: Culture, Society, Technology 2011, Critical Themes Graduate Student Conference 2011 and EURA Conference: The City Without Limits 2011.
