Welcome to Art of The Isolation Issue 03, June 2020:
a curated collection of works made by artists from around the world, while in isolation during the outbreak of the Covid-19 virus.

Colin Read & Glass Animals
Stuart, FL & London, UK
Music Video

To make the official video for Dreamland, we prepared and sent Glass Animals’ Dave Bayley everything he needed to shoot the music video himself, in his own apartment: a set to construct; lighting equipment; props to assemble; camera gear…along with 50 pages of precise instructions, photo glossaries, and diagrams for how to put it all together.
Shout out to Dave, who was an absolute champ, and dragged a dolly track up three flights of stairs (while we watched from the comfort of our own couches on video chat).

Coincidentally, the commission I had going through quarantine was an Ash day bed for a client in Texas. During these times of social distancing and staying put, a piece like this is the perfect addition to one’s space.
However, since shipping, Texas has reopened it’s economy despite all the shit that’s going on. So hopefully the client has a brain and stays nice and cozy in his new day bed.

We’ve been home, now, for sixty days. We just celebrated (my wife) Monica’s first Mother’s Day, plus it was her birthday, recently, and (my daughter) Vivian’s first birthday is this week. Three major events while in quarantine.

We delight in having extra moments together, but it’s not been without its major challenges and stresses. We’re also so sad that Viv has lost her playmates and can’t even go to the playground, and that she won’t have any friends with her for her first birthday.

It’s been difficult to adjust to having so much extra time at home, and practically no personal alone time—I’m writing this with Viv asleep in my lap.
These photos have given me respite from the monotony of these home-bound days. They show the richness of life literally feet from my front door; be it the moon on a still night, the sunrise on days that Vivian is up before dawn, or a water hose dripping from filling up the baby pool.

Photography has helped me find joy and peace in this uncertain time and I’m grateful for my camera.

From my family to yours, please stay safe.
