Scott Lizama’s research focuses on the visual representation of urban space-specifically visual information dissemination structures and methods in relationship to neoliberal urban spatial organization. Additionally, his research interests are in the development of critical visual research methodologies that use digital technology to better understand and define the social construction of space. He has led workshops for the Public Science Project on data visualization and workshops in photographic research methodologies for RC21, an urban research group for the International Sociological Association. Currently, he is completing an empirical analysis of Brooklyn Bridge Park, a privately financed “public” space in Brooklyn, New York, that analyzes the virtual space of park participation through multiple online visual representations.
Research Interests: visual representation of social space, urbanization, visual research methodologies, economic spatial analysis, science and technology studies, photography
