From Björk's video for 'The Gate'
In Björk's "The Gate,"  "the futuristic, CGI-heavy video comes directed by her frequent collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang, with creative direction by Björk, Alessandro Michele (who designed the dress the musician wears in the video), and James Merry (who designed her headpiece)," explains Selim Bulut.

"I am especially proud of this film as I feel it is a culmination of my five-year collaboration with Björk and James Merry," Huang tells Nowness. "It's been such a nourishing three-way relationship and this film is the perfect synthesis of our brains and our hearts. Having Alessandro Michele's design as the centerpiece in this film is a dream.

"I want to give a special shout-out to my visual effects partners Wolf & Crow, who have pulled off an exceptional feat for this visually packed video. Building a world like this takes a village and I feel blessed to be in this company of artists." To read the full article, click here.
