Bjork – Hollow
Björk teams up with biomedical animator Drew Berry to create a visually impressive music video for Hollow, the third single from her album Biophilia.
In regards to the video, Björk says:
“It’s just the feeling when you start thinking about your ancestors and DNA that the grounds open below you and you can feel your mother and her mother, and her mother, and her mother, and her mother 30,000 years back. So suddenly you’re this kinda tunnel, or trunk of DNA… All these ghosts come up so it ended up begin a Halloween song and quite gothic in a way… It’s like being part of this everlasting necklace when you’re just a bead on a chain and you sort of want to belong and be a part of it and it’s just like a miracle.”
The animation was constructed from molecular models of DNA and proteins derived from various forms of scientific data such as x-ray crystallography.
