Her research is focused on digital culture, black diaspora and interdisciplinary practice. She is interested in developing new, open and playful projects for the digital age, with the potential for greater connectivity, access and critical investigation through experimental use of technology. Tamar writes for platforms including NTS Radio and Screenshot Magazine, an online and biannual print magazine. She has presented papers at the Courtauld Institute and assisted production on shows with institutions including Autograph ABP, Limoncello Gallery and the Whitechapel Gallery. She recently curated CONFLUX (2015) for University of the Arts London; embassyHACK (2016) at the Government Art Collection, London; and #BlackmendreamLDN (2016) at Buster Mantis, London.
