Watch Bjork's mind-boggling 360-degree music video

New, 42 comments

It premiered at her MoMA show, but you can finally watch it online

Tomorrow is the final day of the Bjork retrospective at New York City's Museum of Modern Art. The installation chronicled more than 20 years of Bjork's work as a musician and visual artist, including projects related to her most recent album, Vulnicura. One such project was a 360-degree virtual reality music video for the album single "Stonemilker." Now that video is finally up online, so you can watch it without trekking to the museum and strapping on an Oculus Rift headset.

You have to interact with the video to get the full 360-degree experience. When it opens, Bjork is standing on a rocky shoreline, swaying to the song's delicate sadness. Then, she moves off screen. You can shift your view to follow Bjork's movements, or do nothing and continue gazing at the sun setting on the horizon. Either way, it's quite a lovely little experience.
