Björk is performing her song “Quicksand”, taken from last year’s Vulnicura, as a virtual reality/360-degree live stream today.
The Icelandic singer will be performing from within the Miraikan (the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation) in Tokyo at midday today. According to a press release, she’ll be wearing a special ‘Rottlace’ mask, created with 3D printing technology and designed by MIT Media Lab’s Professor Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group.
The performance is part of the touring Björk Digital exhibition that’s opening at the Miraikan tomorrow, and is a collaboration between Björk and Dentsu Lab Tokyo. Björk Digital is expected to visit other cities throughout the year, including London, Paris, and Houston.
The performance starts at 12.00 BST, and can be livestreamed above or at the Dentsu Lab Tokyo website.
