The new visuals accompanying a track from her 2017 album Utopia, are as beguiling as we have come to expect from an artist that thrives on the boundaries.

The man behind the visuals is Tobias Gremmler, a digital artist with a long history of working with musical performances in different genres. For “Tabula Rasa,” he centers Björk’s body, which floats as if underwater, or in space. In fact, her body is floating in the digital realm, bulging and reforming itself in different shapes and colors. She sings the lyrics as her face performs near-kaleidoscopic shifts, and while roots or antennae spring from her and disperse outwards. The effect is extra-terrestrial, while remaining recognisably human.

Björk announced a new visual performance, Cornucopia, to follow her latest album, which she has described as “her most elaborate stage concert yet, where the acoustic and the digital will shake hands, encouraged by a bespoke team of collaborators.” It will include the same all-female, seven-piece Icelandic flute section that appeared on Utopia. Watch the new video here:
