björk + encyclopedia pictura: “wanderlust”.

Regardless of your personal opinion of Björk (she usually fits pretty snugly into the “love her or hate her” category) she easily produces the most artistic, ground-breaking, and visually stunning music videos in her industry. She sets the bar for imagination, hands down. Buzz has been building around her latest vid, “Wanderlust”, since production stills made it on the web a couple months ago.

Now the wait is over. Björk came out in person for the first screening at Deitch Studios in Long Island City on March 13. The video was (finally) released for the rest of us today on Yahoo. Directed by duo Encyclopedia Pictura, this little wonder was shot in 3D with a mix of live action, puppets, scale models, and computer generated animation. The result is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Like it or not, whether you think she’s bat shit crazy or not, Björk is a consummate artist. And you gotta give her respect for that.

The low quality YouTube version of the video simply doesn’t do it justice, and those links are being killed now anyway. Luckily, I got an email from Isaiah at Encyclopedia Pictura with this high-res link. It is beautiful. Check out “Wanderlust” it all it’s glory here.

If you want to see just how one goes about making a plastersine yak, then there’s also a totally interesting behind the scenes spot as well:

  6. Mr. Pink: You said ‘True Blue’ was about a nice girl, a sensitive girl who meets a nice guy, and that ‘Like a Virgin’ was a metaphor for big dicks.
    Mr. Brown: Lemme tell you what ‘Like a Virgin’ is about. It’s all about this cooze who’s a regular fuck machine, I’m talking morning, day, night, afternoon, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick, dick.
    Mr. Blue: How many dicks is that?
    Mr. White: A lot.
    Mr. Brown: Then one day she meets this John Holmes motherfucker and it’s like, whoa baby, I mean this cat is like Charles Bronson in the ‘Great Escape’, he’s digging tunnels. Now, she’s gettin’ the serious dick action and she’s feeling something she ain’t felt since forever. Pain. Pain.
    Joe: Chew? Toby Chew?
    Mr. Brown: It hurts her. It shouldn’t hurt her, you know, her pussy should be Bubble Yum by now, but when this cat fucks her it hurts. It hurts just like it did the first time. You see the pain is reminding a fuck machine what it once was like to be a virgin. Hence, ‘Like a Virgin’.
    Joe: Wong?
