On the occasion of Björk at The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1 presents Stonemilker in the VW Dome, Björk’s first foray into the world of Virtual Reality.
In a continuation of Björk’s pioneering use of technology, Stonemilker, directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, explores the potential for Virtual Reality as a performance platform outside the scope of a traditional music video. Upon entering the VW Dome, the visitor is immersed in a panoramic view of an Icelandic landscape, while the ambient sounds of the waves flood the space. Ten viewing stations are fitted with VR headsets through which the audience can enter Björk’s virtual world. The VR experience lasts for seven minutes, and allows each visitor to interact with one of Björk’s most raw and revealing performances to date in a manner that is both intimate and confrontational.
Stonemilker is organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Director, MoMA PS1 with Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer.
