Yael Eban was born in Israel and raised in Indiana. She is currently an MFA candidate in the photo, video, & related media program at SVA. There has been so much great talent coming out of SVA these past few years. Painter Andrew Brischler is another favorite recent graduate who already has a few exhibitions and success under his belt. I expect the same from Yael. I selected the image for PULSE because I was drawn to the Sisyphean undertones. We all drag a form of "weight" around and up a metaphorical hill in our day to day. It can be easy to make this weight into our own Sisyphean struggle. I appreciate the ability of an artist to take the unseen and mundane and infuse a deeper meaning. Yael's image simply captures an epic tale hidden quietly in our everyday.
