Their goal of this collaboration with combining music and photography is to enhance the emotional experience for the viewer/listener. Both artists are dealing with their own inner demons, whether it be depression, anxiety, fatigue and wish to bring attention to the life with an unbalanced mind.   They chose the title Voice:Röst, röst is Swedish for voice, to share their own each unique voice about their thoughts but without actually using words. For this collaboration, Ted and Jana created their own art based on each other’s work.   Musician Ted Neüman grew up in Eskilstuna, Sweden, and splits his time between Sweden and Budapest, Hungary. Since an early age, the guitar has been Ted’s main instrument, but for this exhibition, he turned to the computer and electronic instruments as the tool of creation. After starting the series, it became much more than a means of communication for Ted, it became a way of dealing with personal matters.   Patterns and rhythms have always played a major role in Ted Neüman’s music writing. He is attracted to the idea of finding the least common denominator and build and evolve the music around it. A shape or form that guides the rest of the creation process and works as a foundation for the song to fall back on/revisit (for recognition) after exploring other musical areas; being different styles, moods, time signatures, or keys.   The songs presented in this exhibition are a reaction to Jana Pryor’s artwork, striving to put a musical voice to the feelings and moods sensed in her photos and as an attempt to write/produce a unified/common soundtrack of the two artist’s minds.   Ohio native Jana Pryor creates self-portraits that depict something much more than just beautiful compositions. The photographer's goal is to make the viewer feel something without giving them a direct narrative. Jana’s photos try to confront the viewer with an outward representation of the inner self, the exterior as seen by the interior. The art for this show is about her inability to properly communicate what depression means for her. She chose non-traditional printing for some of her photographs such as using gampi paper and used tea bags because both papers are fragile but yet strong, sparking the questions of what it is like to be human.   A reoccurring theme she used, is creating an image, then breaking it apart, printing on strips or smaller components, and then placing them back together again to reform the image. Through the rebuilding, it is not as ‘perfect’ as the original image but showing the beauty in the imperfections.   Jana creates her pieces after listening to Ted’s emotionally charged music. Though the artists are two different people and using two completely different art forms, they are on the same wavelength, expressing the same emotion with their art.   The Urban Arts Space Summer Series showcases exhibitions and related discussions by artists, artist groups, community groups, and organizations living and working in the state of Ohio.
