Yang is interested in transdisciplinary research regarding hybrid conditions of geographical belonging, cosmopolitan movements and sociopolitical situation. Her art is exploring the experiences of cross-continental immigration and migration, as well as mapping how technology politically frames the contemporary information age as a form/representation of knowledge. By thinking through media circulation, she transforms the mass media or situational sound to recreate psycho-geographical variation expressing communicative conflict or transitional status under historical, site-specific and global-local contexts. In addition to individual works, she also participates collaborations making projects related to transitional ecology, geo-temporality or spatio-temporality.
