Since 2009, Tan has developed a series of activities engaging his community on Staten Island and in greater New York City through sustainability activities that acknowledge the shortage of food on a global scale. S.O.S. stands for Sustainable Organic Stewardship, a pledge that Tan has taken to live more sustainably through hands on gardening, seed saving and sharing, and raising his own chickens. His art is a form of education of self and community through eco-actions that anyone can replicate. With this 36-page guide we are inviting educators, organizations and individuals to replicate what Tan did in New York anywhere in the world, to share his story and to create their own identity to help make the world a more sustainable place to live. In the guide are Tan's step-by-step process involved in developing and performing his S.O.S. projects"--Artists' website
