BlendSorcery by Yule Heibel: Surreal photo mashups that pop

Yule Heibel started making photo blends around 2012, when iphoneography made taking and mixing photos a readily available technology. What began as a side project soon grew into an obsession: how to create just the right amount of tension between natural elements (foliage, clouds, etc.) and manmade ones (bridges, buildings). How estranged can one element become in its marriage to another? The result is typically a new creation in a space which is alien to both.

Yule studied sculpture at the Art Academy in Munich, and art history at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, and at Harvard, Cambridge, where she earned a PhD. She is the author of the book, Reconstructing the Subject, and contributed to numerous catalogs and publications. As a journalist, she has written about urban development. She moved to Victoria BC for ten years before returning to Boston in 2012. Please visit www.yuleheibel.com for more.
