Scanning the Landscape: An Interview with Aurora Tang by Kate Wolf
Aurora Tang is a curator and researcher working at the intersections of Land Art’s legacy and site-specific installation, architectural criticism, history, photography, and the imperative of ground-truthing. (The term, borrowed from geography, means simply knowing places through firsthand experience of them.) Since 2009, she has worked for The Center for Land Use Interpretation, an organization that exemplifies all of the above, and is nearing its third decade of operation. Here, Tang discusses the multivalence of her work in land use phenomenology and education, the freedom of research, the significance of rephotography, and approaching landscape as readymade.
