The Björk Digital exhibition just opened at Somerset House in London, and the singer herself appeared at a press conference as an avatar to introduce the project. Björk’s body movements were mimicked by the figure using motion-capture technology, and she commented on the importance of the exhibition in an accompanying Facebook statement:
technology is enabling women to work outside the already formed hierarchical systems . the laptop arriving 1999 gave me a personal studio to make vespertine , the touchscreen 2006 helped me map my own idiosyncratic musicology outside the classical canon and reconnect it w nature and make biophilia , VR is helping making a new stage free of politics where sound and vision is swirling free in 360 fully liberated.
