Kentaro Yamada looks at the world in terms of temporality; he is interested in the slippage of these temporal states in the universe, in particular in relation to human beings. His choice of materials often balances between the archaic mineral or vegetal and the industrial, questioning the relationship of humans, in their infinitesimal time on earth, with their natural environment.
