Yamada's work stems from his experience as a child actor, constantly disguising and concealing his true self, which has shaped his current perspective of production. He is interested in the idea that conversations with others (not just humans) are a re-expressing of oneself in the context of those relationships, which in turn creates the world around us, like Martin Heidegger's “In-der-Welt-sein.” For recent works, Yamada has used archival methods to collect memories and to ‘read’ the pulse of humanity - observing patterns in natural phenomena and history, exploring the similarities between these and our human society. Yamada observes the construction and deconstruction of modern society, permanence and change and commonality and difference from various perspectives.
