Yolanda Heintze was born in Marburg an der Lahn, Germany. She currently lives and works as an artist and designer in Berlin and is part of the creative working community “Oberschöneweide (KAOS)”.
After graduating from high school, she traveled through South America for one and a half years. It was there where she learned the art of jewelry. In July 2014, Yolanda successfully obtained her Bachelor of Arts at the University of Pforzheim, where she specialized in "Jewelry and Objects of Everyday Life". In 2015, Yolanda obtained a scholarship to work on her jewelry and new objects at the German Museum of Technology in Berlin.
A View To Alteration - °Eine Skizzierung Unserer Umwelt°
With her works Yolanda Heintze seeks to create a synergy of art and design. The tables of the series „A VIEW TO ALTERATION" are made to inspire conversations, thoughts and provoke actions. Every table of this series underlines different aspects of the theoretical analysis : Through the open display of the roots, the table „See Your Roots“ reminds us of our natural necessities, which are, as Adorno says, replaced by „suggerierten Bedürfnissen“(desired non-essentials)
The interspace of the table „Shadows Of Influence“ is filled with fluid. Movable golden surfaces emblematize/illustrate the interaction between human, object and environment. When the golden areas get moved, their shadows change accordingly. This allows the table „ACT!“ to still be filled and invites in a figurative sense to act and to change the shadows that are cast by you.
