Interact With Bjork in Virtual Reality in Her Latest Video
Andrew Thomas Huang Directs 360 Degree Film
Jun 08, 2015
Bjork is known for her experimentation with the latest technology; back in 2012 when iPads were relatively new, her album Biophilia was released alongside a series of iPad apps. For her latest album, she's dabbled with the technology-of-the-moment, virtual reality, releasing an immersive video filmed in 360 degrees.
In the video, for her track Stonemilker from album Vulnicura, the Icelandic singer was filmed in a 360-degree panorama as she stands on a windswept Icelandic shore. Viewers can interact with the video by dragging it around to change their viewpoint. Since April, the video has been on display at MoMA in New York City, where people can experience it via Oculus Rift headsets, as part of a retrospective of Bjork's work.
Bjork has just released it online this week. It was shot by director Andrew Huang for VRSE Works, while Digital Domain was behind the digital effects.
