Icelandic singer-songwriter Bjork has gained popularity throughout her career by being more outlandish than her more traditional counterparts. Bjork’s music covers a range of different genres, from electronic to classical, showing that she doesn’t limit herself to a confined niche.
For three weeks beginning June 29, visitors of the Miraikan can experience the artist’s unique sounds and visuals. “Bjork Digital” provides audiences with more than just a concert experience as the exhibition looks into the music icon’s past, present and future work.
“Bjork Digital” makes extensive use of virtual reality in almost all aspects of the exhibition as the singer wants to create an “intimate” feeling between her and the audience. Bjork also worked with multiple filmmakers to create this experimental project.
While the opening has already sold out, Bjork herself will DJ that night in the symbol zone, one of the exhibit’s five unique spaces. (Jon Ginsburg)
