« Like a screen is a window to a video game world, I feel works are
a peep holes to the artistic process, where we painters are warriors, and
we score our points by how brave, liberated and clear we manage to
Fascinated by the meeting point between the artistic, commercial and the community aspect of her work, yifat created a nonprofit called Look&listen, doing curatorial, editorial and community work.
As a mom of five unschooling kids working as a painter, she created "The list", a structure that allow her to maintain her system and find balance.
Derived from her experience with L&L , "the list" and her weekly homeschoolers meeting in her garden, yifat came to the model of "networkism" or "network relationships" as a way to sum up all her alternative experience, a model, that by structure takes into consideration the inter-being factor, and resist the old hierarchical ways 'NR' is offering an inclusive, positive, practical, creative and compassionate way for social, educational and professional action.

« Tout comme un écran est une fenêtre sur un monde de jeu vidéo,
une peinture est un aperçu de notre processus : là où nous, peintres,
sommes des guerriers, et nous gagnons des points au fur et à mesure
que l’on parvient à devenir courageux, libéré et clair. »
