Our Work In Progress series looks at how collaboration really works. We want to go beyond behind-the-scenes, and tap into what creativity looks like, sounds like and feels like. We don’t claim to explain it; this is not a practical, how-to guide. But by showing how creative minds see the worlds around them, and understand each other, we’ll window onto some of the magic and the mystery.
Our first film features friends, collaborators and artistic soulmates Björk and Jesse Kanda. The pair worked on two of the Icelandic artist’s most amazing videos – 2016’s Mouth Mantra and last year’s Arisen My Senses. In the film we get a sense of how and why the duo are drawn to each other’s way of working.
