In her current visual research, Pham focuses on the intersection of class, culture, and the lived experience. Many of her ephemeral installations utilize drawing, video, sculpture, performance, and temporal markers (e.g. live plants, burning incense, etc.). Pham merges the language of visual art with the language of cultivation (rice and industrial farming) to create new connections related to class and culture. In the spirit of growth, she still seeks and participates in art+science collaboration and art performances.

At UA, Giang Pham teaches Drawing I and Two-Dimensional Design courses.
