The Q& A with Bjork at Carriageworks today:
Bjork discussed her latest project ‘Bjork Digital’ which will be running from 4 June through to 18 June at Carriageworks, as part of Vivid. She spoke of the amazing journey into experimental technology which is ‘Bjork Digital’. The exhibition is a work in progress, that takes the concept of a music video to another, immersive, interactive, and intensely intimate level through the use of virtual reality, 360 degree cinema and sound. ‘Bjork Digital’ is a taste of Bjork’s latest album, ‘Vulnicura’ (2015) that can only be sampled through the use of virtual reality headsets, and in some cases controls with each track employing a sightly different technology. Bjork will also be DJing at two sold events on the 3rd and 4th of June at Carriageworks which the Icelandic singer described as a journey into her record collection.
The ‘Bjork Digital’ exhibition runs from 4 June to 18 June at Carriageworks as part of the Vivid Sydney program. The exhibition is free and open to the public. The virtual reality requires no experience other than openness to new technology but bookings are encouraged as there is a limit on audience capacity:
