a non-ipad glimpse of bjork’s biophilia

(Video link here.) Here’s a glimpse of the interactive iPAD app that Björk recently created to be part of her recent album, as she tries to give create ever more dimensions in her music. Its introduction, narrated by David Attenborough, is a strange combination of beautiful, inspiring and ever-so-slightly hokey, in a good way.  We like what she’s trying to do and the sentiment behind it…especially the idea of our selves as gateways:

Forget the size of the human body. Remember that you are a gateway between universal and the microscopic, the unseen forces that stir the depths of your innermost being and nature who embraces you and all that there is.

Listen. Learn. Create.

    this is so nice- thanks for posting it. Makes me want to hear the album! reminds me of this:
    “Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence.” Max Ehrmann’s Desiderata, 1927
    A found poem written anonymously, which was also made into song by Les Crane.
