At the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo, Icelandic musician Björk livestreamed her 360-degree concert in virtual reality, which is significant because she's now the first artist to do so.

The video was captured with Dentsu Lab Tokyo as part of the Björk Digital exhibition, featuring a performance of 'Quicksand' from Björk's newest album, 'Vulnicura.' During the performance, Björk further embraced cutting-edge technology by sporting a 3D-printed face mask that was created in collaboration with designer Neri Oxman.

Last year, Björk launched a 360-degree music video on YouTube and a dedicated app for her song 'stonemilker.' By sharing her latest performance in a live 360-degree virtual reality format, this could inspire new ways for other artists to connect with fans all over the world in the future.
