Usually when you think of recording artists coming together to make art, you think of them collaborating in the studio to put out a hit record. Well, visual artist Christian Marclay has put a new spin on things with his mix and match album cover project.
Christian Marclay blends well-known album covers like Michael Jackson's Thriller with lesser known artists. The blends are not based on genre but on how the different cover artwork blends to make seamless images--for instance, a bikini-bottomed Jim Morrison or a face that is half Bob Marley and half the former front man of Inxs, Michael Hutchence. How's that for a playlist.
