Interview: Jessica Hess "More is More" @ Hashimoto Contemporary, SF http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/interview-jessica-hess-more-is-more-hashimoto-contemporary-sf http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/interview-jessica-hess-more-is-more-hashimoto-contemporary-sf Interview: Jessica Hess
If you happened to purchase or browse through our Juxtapoz Hyperreal book, you have have stopped in your tracks at the work of Jessica Hess. Her work with oil on canvas works depict the more depleted parts of urbanity, but also carry out such strong and absorbing color control that these almost photorealistic works become abstract in appearence. On Saturday August 1, Hess will open More is More, a solo show of new paintings at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco, and we have an interview with Hess talking about the work and the city as inspiration.

If you like your museums located 2,275 metres above sea level, near the Kronplatz ski resort in South Tyrol, Italy, and you remember Ben Folds Five albums, and you like mountain climbers, you will love Zaha Hadid's new design for a museum built for climber Reinhold Messner on Alpine peak, Mount Kronplatz. As Dezeen notes, "London-based architect Zaha Hadid – already in the news this month after her design for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic stadium was scrapped – designed a structure built into the side of the mountain, emerging only at certain points to offer specific views."

Italian photographer, Filippo Minelli explores smoke bombs often in nature in his series “Silence/Shapes.” He uses homemade smoke bombs to achieve a large amount of smoke for the very short amount of time allotted to fully photograph its impact. The smoke bombs in the images often mark what would normally be a serene or pure natural landscape.
