Bjork’s mind-bending 360-degree video for “Stonemilker” ”“ a highlight from her March retrospective at New York’s Museum of Modern Art ”“ has premiered worldwide on YouTube (via Dazed). The clip, directed by Andrew Huang, allows users to view the Icelandic art-pop experimentalist from different angles as she sings on a wind-swept beach outside of Reykjavik. Fans with the appropriate browser technology can navigate the visuals by pulling on the screen with their mouse or by clicking on the arrows in the top-left corner. 

“Intimacy was the goal of this project, giving Björk the open, unrestricted stage on which to perform, and giving audiences a one-on-one experience with her through [virtual reality],” Huang told Dazed of the innovative video. “The shoot was spontaneous, decided in a late-night conversation between me and Björk while we had VR gear with us in Iceland ”“ the cyclical format of the 360-degrees was perfect for the circular fugue structure of ‘Stonemilker.'”
