Bjork, Biophilia, and Hell on Earth

You either love her or you hate her. There really is no in between. I love her. Somehow Bjork can make things that seem repulsive on the offset, kinda cool. She wore that swan dress to the Oscars in the year 2001. You know the one. Twelve years later, not only are people still talking about it, but one particular guy even tried to crash this year’s event while wearing a version of the dress he made himself!

So when it comes to Bjork, nothing but love. She’s one of the artists I absolutely must see perform live before I die (Thom York is the other). That’s why I enjoy what’s been happening in Times Square every night for the past month, at exactly 11:57 each night. And this totally illustrates my point. Because Bjork has made Times Square, one of the most abhorrent places on the planet, somehow awesome again. She’s being featured in the Midnight Moment art series – which means that for the month of March, her video for the song “Mutual Core,” is played on every digital screen and billboard in Times Square. It’s quite a spectacle – and looks something like this:

It’s going to happen only four more times, so if you’re in the neighborhood, go check it out. Bjork’s video, with Bjork projectile vomiting lava, is most appropriate at Times Square (aka: Hell on Earth). Did you know, for instance, that her latest album, Biophilia, was meant to teach children about science and music? Oh, you didn’t? Is there anything this woman can’t do? Probably not. Bjork is not only a muse, but she’s one of the muse higher ups – a boss muse, if you will.
