Bodies, much like the people who house them, are vastly different. How we understand them, then, is largely dependent on how they’re shown to us. Photography — or the two-dimensional renderings we encounter upon first blush — introduce us to those bodies, but offer something else, too.

We agree with Richard Avedon when he says, "Anything is an art if you do it at the level of an art." Sculpture, mineral, sound and thought — this is art if you want it to be.

Three Pointers with Industrial Goth Maven Zola Jesus

Industrial goth maven Nika Danilova has been making dark art pop under the moniker Zola Jesus for nearly a decade. The Wisconsin-bred musician, known for making atmospheric, abrasive orchestral sounds, took a break from working on some new collaborations in Los Angeles to chat with us about her favorite local hangs, where to start your dive into Neo-classical listening and why rusted sheet metal can be your best friend in the booth.

Just/Talk: Justin Strauss with Legendary Bronx-Born DJ and Hip Hop Head, “Breakbeat Lou” Flores
