Yairi explores historically, culturally, or politically charged local places that are also associated with his personal biography and memory. Whether it is a Leper Hospital or a writer’s library, an abandoned Arab village, a cheap hotel room or a museum undergoing renovation – all are transformed through his personal perspective, deconstructing and recomposing spaces, times and events.   Yuval adopted the semi-fictional figure of the Surveyor. An alter-ego created to examine his surroundings, used for introspection and personal soul searching, as he tries to come to terms with certains episodes of his past. With the help of the Surveyor he formulates a coded language with symbolic actions and objects. He expresses thoughts and feelings about these experiences, which he cannot share publicly.
