Michael Wang uses systems that operate on a global scale – species distribution, climate change, the global economy – as media for art. His works include “Invasives,” the controlled release of invasive species; “Carbon Copies,” an exhibition linking the production of art to the release of greenhouse gases; and “Rivals,” a series that addresses corporate competition.
