El clip, de 10 minutos de duración, encuentra a una Björk con el corazón roto vagando por los paisajes de su Islandia nativa. Fue dirigido por su ya colaborador Andrew Thomas Huang.
Las visuales de Black Lake habían sido exclusivamente encargadas por Klaus Biesenbach para la exposición retrospectiva de Björk en el MoMa, donde el video fue exhibido.
Sobre el video, Björk dijo lo siguiente en su página de Facebook:
here comes the black lake video
a video me and andrew thomas huang did
i would like to thank him and james merry so strongly for going through with me the longest video process yet
especially to andrew for his talented elegant patience and to take my first visual impulses and weave into them his own magnificent vision :
im so honoured !!
it was a complex yet adventurous process to synchronize with so many departments
i would like to thank klaus biesenbach for commissioning the video
and ta to the haxan cloak , the speaker collaborators , the architect david benjamin , marco perry who all helped me make the most ideal sound room possible for that song
and then thank derek and emma birkett and tamsin . and iris and erna
and arca for producing the music with me
i guess its time for “stonemilker” and “black lake” to get out there into the world after a 3 month stint in a museum ….. ( after all the effort , stonemilker was like black lakes spontaneous baby sibling ha ha ha ) we tried to make it in a way it was both at home in an exhibition and also in the context of a no nonesense music video ( still my fav format) and i hope you dont mind the wait
and back to M U S I C …
can i thank new york for a feisty 5 months , 8 lush gigs ?
most curious though about them next things
perhaps we dont even have the best tools yet
and technology might be where all the senses can merge even better ?
!!! here´s to some more VR vulnicura releases soon !!!
