Iggy Pop – The Artist
James Newell Osterberg Jr. (born, 1947), better known as Iggy Pop, is an American singer, songwriter, musician, record producer, and actor. Designated the “Godfather of Punk”, he was the vocalist of influential proto-punk band the Stooges, who were formed in 1967 and have disbanded and reunited multiple times since. Initially playing a raw, primitive style of rock and roll, the band sold few records in their original incarnation and gained a reputation for their confrontational performances, which often involved acts of self-mutilation by Pop. He had a long collaborative and personal friendship with David Bowie over the course of his career, beginning with the Stooges’ album Raw Power in 1973. With both musicians having relocated to West Berlin to wean themselves off their respective drug addictions, Pop began his solo career by collaborating with Bowie on the 1977 albums The Idiot and Lust for Life. Throughout his career, Pop is well known for his outrageous and unpredictable stage antics and distinctive voice. He was one of the first performers to do a stage-dive and popularised the activity. Pop’s music has encompassed a number of styles over the course of his career, including garage rock, punk rock, hard rock, heavy metal, art rock, new wave, jazz, blues, and electronic. Though his popularity has fluctuated through the years, many of Pop’s songs have become well known, including “Search and Destroy” and “I Wanna Be Your Dog” by the Stooges, and his solo hits “Lust for Life”, “The Passenger” and “Real Wild Child (Wild One)”.
Isolation – The Song
“Isolation” is a song written by Iggy Pop and David Bowie. It was taken from Blah-Blah-Blah, the seventh studio album by Iggy Pop. Originally released in 1986, on the label A&M, it remains his most commercially successful album to date. Blah-Blah-Blah appeared after a four-year hiatus for Pop, with David Bowie serving as his prime collaborator. It would be their final collaboration. A successful tour followed the album’s release.
Surgical Mask – The Shape
This record has been modelled into the silhouette of a man wearing sunglasses and a surgical mask while self-isolating. Self isolating is a term that is used when someone voluntarily stays within their home to protect the general public from their possible exposure of a contagious disease to avoid spreading it to healthy individuals without that contagious disease.
A surgical mask, also known as a procedure mask, medical mask or simply as a face mask, is intended to be worn by health professionals during surgery and during nursing to catch the bacteria shed in liquid droplets and aerosols from the wearer’s mouth and nose. They are not designed to protect the wearer from inhaling airborne bacteria or virus particles and are less effective than respirators, which provide better protection due to their material, shape and tight seal. There use has become common, initially in China during the 2019–20 coronavirus outbreak but now throughout the world.
