Jana Cruder exhibits her new fine-art still & video series ” THE WAY OF THE MODERN MAN “.
In our contemporary Western society, our attachment to handheld technology is irrefutable. Contemplation on the effects of this dependency, however, is
rare. Cruder, set out to explore and document the relationship between individuals and technology. Within an observation isolation booth, each participant entered into dialogue via his or her device with photographer Jana Cruder. To capture the significant effect of social the habit, people was observed semi-nude, accompanied only by their cellular device. Final images and video, symbolize the connection of bodily regression, physiological changes and our attachment to inanimate devices.  



CREATION
Each participant, of a chosen cast of subjects, will spend approximately thirty minutes in private session with the artist. The subject will be alone within a physically confined space, permitted to enter only with his or her mobile device. Communication between the subject and the artist will take place via text message only, and will vary slightly per session. The only other access into the session will be via camera lens, which will be fitted into an opening in the wall of the space.
The artist will be outside the enclosed space, controlling not only the text exchange but also still capture and video recording. Conversations captured in multiple layers: text message, still image, and video footage. A crafted compilation of these layers will explore the human:device relationship specifically in its effect on the human body.

HONORED to be interviewed by AI-AP for my new film piece  ME


Super excited to share this with you!!!! I've been reading Motion Arts Pro news letters daily for a few years and I'm super honored to be featured in today's newsletter!  This is a step in the right direction I feel for my image making. I love stills but I'm really loving playing in both mediums. I hope you enjoy this little dramatic black-and-white experiment in storytelling through the mixing of contrasty b&w images and sound crafting.

I worked with THE REEL LAB to bring this bring this together.
