Paper Topics

Art 511, Art 511 Cartography, Artist Reasearch

For my paper one of the possible topics of exploration is the history of the flaneur, and how s/he has changed throughout he years in his or her interactions with public spaces and their influence on urban development and planning. Who is the flaneur of today.

Another possible topic of exploration is the use of the urban environment and how it changes, not just in physical landscape but in demographic of its inhabitants. How do people change the space, how does the space change the people. and what happens when a space becomes unrecognizable.
