The Art of the Close Shave Demonstrated in Fashion Filmmaker Bart Hess’ Sexy Short

The seductive curves of a toned figure are slowly unveiled by the ultimate seamless shave in designer, animator and photographer Bart Hess’s sleek new film. Inspired by the aerodynamic forms of swimmers currently battling it out in the Olympic pool, Hess was aided by a pair of human shavers manipulating a two-meter long blade in turning a mechanical act of grooming into a strangely hypnotic performance. “What is important to me in my work is a sense of estranging,” admits Hess, who added the white bar in post-production to compound the uncanny feel of the film. “I want to show the spectator an image that may not be recognizable right away.” Collaborating on textiles with designers like Ann Sofie Back and Iris van Herpen, and sculpting unique outfits for photographer Nick Knight’s editorials for AnOther Magazine and US Vogue, Hess is known for his experimental treatment of materials, like the 15Ib slime dress created for Lady Gaga’s Born This Way album and video. “Normally within my work I am looking for the limits of a material,” says Hess. “But in this film I was looking for the limits of the shaving ritual by scaling it up to include the whole body.” Here, Hess takes NOWNESS beneath the skin of his shoot.

Marbled / Stools by ADG design

Harsh and rigorous looking stools made of plywood are matched with a cushion that looks like granite, but is actually a conglomeration of soft polyurethane that perfectly simulates the stone. Only when sitting down on them will you discover that an uncomfortable-looking object may hide a comfortable and welcoming nature.

Monogrenade — Le Fantôme

A music film by Kristof Brandl and shot by Christophe Collette that questions our perception of reality and memory. Ghostly and compelling images draw the viewer into a conflict that repeats itself. After losing everything, material possessions, love, and perhaps even sanity, a robot injects the male character with a futuristic drug that lets him re-live precious moments that once made him feel alive. Traveling back to memories frozen in time, our character wishes to make the past his future.
