While tapping into diverse disciplines including ecology, music, and narrative, Tang puts actions, experiences, objects and installations into works that create liminal areas that re-contextualize and compare systems, information, histories, and paradigms. Recently, Tang has become interested in abstractions of form and narrative as a means of revealing and transcending cultural signifiers and signified and incorporating non-western worldviews—such as humor and the collapse of subject and object in Zen Koans, ritual clowns—and cultural outputs to create and critique new, hybrid worldviews.
