Watch Bjork Explain How Television Works

The World According To Bjork
Watch Bjork Explain How Television Works
"This looks like a city. "

Most of us would look at the inside of a television set and see a mess of wires. But the rare, exotic creature Bjork looks inside a TV and sees a miniature city with houses and elevators. In this vintage video, the singer explains how television used to scare her because an Icelandic poet told her some screwed up stuff about what happens when you watch it (the program you’re watching becomes about you!?). Then she read a Danish book and found out the “scientifical truth” what was really going on in that tiny city full of wires. And that my friends, is why you shouldn’t let poets lie to you. I want to carry Bjork in my pocket all day and consult her about all the mundane things that happen, so she can make thinks like brushing my teeth and riding the subway seem magical and transformative. Her accent alone is enough to do the trick. [The Atlantic]
