Icelandic musician Björk is known for her eclectic music and style, as well as a quickness to experiment with new forms of technology—all of this remains true with a new 3D-printed mask project created with designer Neri Oxman.

A 3D scan of the bone and tissue in Björk's face was taken in order to create a dynamic mask inspired by her underlying musculoskeletal system. The structure is made up of many strands, which resemble individual tendons.

The mask has been dubbed the 'Rottlace' mask and made its debut at a performance in Tokyo. Because of the way the mask was printed, it still allows the artist to move her face and neck freely while on stage.
