Elfin Icelandic chanteuse and awesomeness supreme Bjork just unveiled her latest video ‘Hollow‘ from her most ambitious project till date, the 2011 masterpiece ‘Biophilia‘. Get set to be enlightened on molecular biology and DNA in this one y’all!
Created by bio-medical animator Drew Berry, this video is an exploration of Bjork’s genetic constitution and molecular landscapes. According to Bjork,
‘It’s just the feeling when you start thinking about your ancestors and DNA that the grounds open below you and you can feel your mother and her mother, and her mother, and her mother, and her mother 30,000 years back. So suddenly you’re this kinda tunnel, or trunk of DNA … All these ghosts come up so it ended up begin a Halloween song and quite gothic in a way … It’s like being part of this everlasting necklace when you’re just a bead on a chain and you sort of want to belong and be a part of it and it’s just like a miracle.’
Music and molecular biology.
Does it get any better than this?
No it does not.
The song itself is crafted ingeniously by Bjork, and the sound is entirely hers alone. Watch the video right here :
