    Troels Degn Johansson is an Assistant Professor at the Department of Digital Aesthetics and Communications, IT-University of Copenhagen (ITU), and Head of Studies of the ITU’s Masters program in Design, Communication, and Media. Additionally, he is a co-founder of the newly opened ITU Center for Computer Games Research Copenhagen (game.itu.dk). His main research interests are aesthetics and representation with special reference to virtual environments in e.g. games, MUDs, visualization, and narrativity. His PhD thesis, “Landscapes of Communications”, (2002) thus maps out pictorial representation in web-based visualisation of change in landscape and urban space, by setting off from an epistemological analysis of cybernetic geography. He has published extensively on aesthetics, pictorial semiotics, and computer-mediated communications; most recently as a co-author of “Sense and Senses in Aesthetics” (Söderström, Helsinki, 2003).
