Björk debuts hairy 3D-printed mask for tour’s Tokyo leg

leisure1

Designer Neri Oxman and the Mediated Matter Group came up with the concept, which Björk is putting into practise on the Tokyo leg of a Björk Digital virtual reality event series which started June 29 and runs until July 18.

Björk’s own face was used as a basis for the prosthetic covering, which mimics soft tissue, muscle and rigid bone structure within a single print, Mediated Matter said in a statement.

An earlier Björk Digital Exhibition at Carriageworks in Sydney, June 4-18, made use of a 3D printed dress.

Björk released “Vulcinaria,” the eighth studio album of her adult career, in January 2015.

While “Vulnicura Live” is due July 15th, a special Mask Edition is set for release in September, and will include a low polygon 3D Björk moth paper mask.
