■I discussed "Chimera"(2018) as part of the Mainichi Newspaper's online TV program "MAIMOKU: episode 85 "Art and The Plastic Waste Crisis". The program was live streamed on 27 June 2019, one day before the G20 Osaka Summit, at which the topic of marine plastic pollution was a major issue.

■I was interviewed, and"Chimera"(2018) was featured, on the Mainichi Newspaper's morning edition on 1 November 2018. [online version]​ 

■My video installation "Chimera"(2018), which formed part of an exhibition at The Crypt Gallery in London, was reviewed in a column written by France-based journalist Hanayo Kuno, titled "South France report : A Beach Where Plastics Bloom" and featured in the online edition of the Mainichi Newspaper on 9 October 2018. Kuno-san noted (translated):

"Yasuda-san's work does more than function as a documentary film highlighting the danger of plastic waste [...] her art is filled with a power that evokes the complex emotions and memories of humans - in a way that transcends the "factual". [...] Through my conversation with Yasuda-san, I imagined the shiny plastics as human beings bearing the burden of an existence in which decomposition is not an option. There is, for them, no option but to remain, and I even found myself having sympathy for their hopeless existence"

■"Chimera"(2018) was shortlisted for the TENT Academy Awards 2018 and was screened as part of the Video Art Festival at KINO Rotterdam on 8 September 2018. The work was also exhibited at TENT Rotterdam on 14 September 2018.
