Conceptually, Cazabon’s work is focused on the intersection of environmental and social issues. Media and approaches employed in her projects include photography, text, audio, video, virtual reality, and community participation. Many of her projects are ongoing and scalable, customized for the location and venue in which they are realized, allowing the work to fully engage with concepts and evolve over a long period of time. In order to explore the environmental impact of her work, she is drawn to using ephemeral materials and display methods, including expired photographic materials, video projections, audio, transit posters, billboards, canvas prints on exterior structures, vinyl prints on glass, and virtual platforms.
