As the novel coronavirus rapidly spreads all across the globe, doctors and other health officials are recommending people to go by self- distancing rules and go into self-isolation if possible. While people are trying to follow them as best as possible and still get a pretty decent experience out of this all, some are trying out a little bit more of a creative approach to this new self-distancing life.
Artists from L.A., California, Paco Conde and Roberto Fernandez, came up with an ingenious idea to recreate famous album covers according to our current situation and make them quarantine-appropriate.
The Beatles - Abbey Road
The Los Angeles-based collective called Activista created the album cover series 6 Feet Covers. They re-imagined the most iconic album covers to apply to the rules of social distancing. While they put a significant distance between the musicians in the covers, they made sure to keep the iconic aesthetic in tact.
The series contain pieces recognized all over the world such as “Abbey Road” by The Beatles”, Queen’s second album, “Destroyer” by Kiss and many others. It was all done to raise the awareness of the importance of social distancing and the role it plays in flattening the curve in order to aid the healthcare system to keep in tact.
The Clash - Combat Rock
U2 - The Joshua Tree
Roberto Fernandez and Paco Conde from Activista themselves describe their work as “extraordinary ideas for extraordinary times”, which is extremely fitting to this situation. They share creative activism that addresses the issues they care about.
Kiss - Destroyer
The Ramones - Anthology
The duo share skills in art directing, painting and copywriting. Together they are behind of some extraordinary and award-winning ideas that have been recognized by adage and the Cannes Report. They were also listed in Forbes Magazine’s 100 Most Creative People In The World in 2017.
