On conceptual bases her work can be characterized by combination of different media such as sculpture, painting, drawing, video game, animation, procedural installations. Her works investigate language of visual culture and image production. Emulating forms and constructions of everyday object design and architecture from memory and imagination point towards impact specific to surfeit of images we see all around us.

Her recent collaborations with craftsmen confront the complexity of digital and technological development in relation to traditional techniques and process of redefining human condition. Tamars work addresses the question of images contributing to construction of identity and how identities are subsumed into larger political and cultural structures.
