Yamada's practice is grounded in an Eastern appreciation of the nature of materials and also ideas related to Western phenomenology. Engaging with the tensions between the conceptions of nature, time and space in Eastern and Western cultures and traditions, and drawing upon ideas from archaeology, object oriented philosophy and phenomenology, Yamada explores through his practice the agency of 'objects' and how they shape the various ways through which we perceive nature, time and space today.
