Video of the Week - Bjork: "Wanderlust"

Nobody makes more imaginative videos than Bjork. Unsurprisingly, Bjork never plays it safe and uses the music video to create images that match the avant garde nature of her music. Her new video for "Wonderlust" is certainly no exception, and it's arguably the most visually beautiful video she's ever produced (and that's really saying something).

Directed by the production team known as Encyclopedia Pictura, "Wonderlust" actually comes in two flavors, regular old 2-D and an enhanced 3-D version set to debut tomorrow during the first annual Record Store Day (support your indie record stores, people!). While I can't speak for the 3-D version, I can say that the 2-D version is nothing short of stunning. So many bright and beautiful colors, as well fantastic set/costume design and even Cirque du Soleil-style choreography make this video truly a unique artistic endeavor. Of course, those of us who follow Bjork wouldn't have it any other way.

Wanderlust - 2d
