Seniors Quarantining in English Care Facility Recreate Iconic Album Covers
The next Johnny Cash or Taylor Swift might just be a resident of the Sydmar Lodge Care Home in Edgware, England. After being in lockdown for more than 120 days, the seniors at the assisted living facility decided to recreate some of the most iconic album covers, transforming themselves into Blink 182, Adele, and Bruce Springsteen in some amusing parodies.
The facility’s activities coordinator, Robert Specker, helmed the project—which includes Elvis Presley’s self-titled debut, Madonna’s True Blue, and David Bowie’s Aladdin Sane— and shared the full series in a now-viral post.

An Intricate Circuit Board Formed with Thousands of Miniature Modeling Clay Pieces by Tim Easley
For a recent commission from indie record label Albert’s Favourites, London-based designer Tim Easley created an intricate circuitboard completely out of plasticine clay. The finished work measures approximately 20 inches square (50 x 50 cm) and took the artist about 80 hours to complete. He then photographed the clay circuitboard with birds-eye and angled aerial views to create the final album artwork.
Easley created the project for the London-based electronic music duo Modified Man. He describes the work, which envisions an abstracted future perspective on today’s technology, on Behance:
