It’s no coincidence that the porn industry has embraced virtual reality. The penetration is really intimate. It’s really exciting to place to be.

Björk . The Guardian 3.06.2016

From a viewing platform I see her amid monstera plants, wearing white, her head a glowing green orb. She dances crazily to Zara Larsson’s Lush Life. Aside from the occasional pop track like this, it’s a doggedly eclectic mix. Bollywood, oriental chimes and an industrial dance track so punitive it’d turn Squarepusher pale. But the half-lit, half-full room is full of languid half-dancers.
