Through such process of reinterpretation, Yangkura was quite naturally drawn to ecology and environment. He presents environmental issues and also seeks for solutions to address them. Hence, he believes cooperation between various environmental organizations, science and technology, and artists is important. He actively brings overlapping areas of environment and art into his artworks and is showing them in various countries in many different ways.
