Full Screen collects all of the remarkable videos we've seen in the last 24 hours. Today, Björk takes you on a virtual reality tour of the beach, JOOJ choreograph puberty, and Terror Pigeon teach you how to party.
Björk's new 360 degree panorama music video is described as "virtual reality" and not "interactive," which feels like a nice retro reprieve from the new trend in videos (it did premiere in an art gallery and not online, after all). It's also a rare interactive video that we can embed here without making you click away to a standalone site, so that's nice. Refreshingly simple, the Andrew Thomas Huang-directed video consists of Björk doing her Björk thing while surrounded by a beautiful Icelandic beach panorama that you can explore independently by moving the cursor in the top-left corner of your screen. At first, you'll find yourself mostly following her around as she sings and shuffles, but by the end you're surrounded by Björks, all serenading you wherever you turn. Which, come to think of it, sounds like a nightmare I once had... - Richard Trapunski
Bjork's Vulnicura is out now via One Little Indian.
“Jessica” is avant-garde powerduo Sook-Yin Lee and Adam Litovitz's affecting tale of young untameable girlhood inspired by the early loss of Lee’s sister Dede and her friend, Jessica. The description for the video, directed by Sook-Yin Lee herself, reads: "confined to a mysterious space, two girls pass the time, idly, then uncontrollably - awkwardly trying fit the role of a ballerina and a showgirl - only to surrender to their circumstance, unsure of what it is.” Dazy, at moments frantic, and steady like a soothing stream, fine choreography depicts two girls dancing freely for an unknown beat until they lay to rest. Lee’s vocals are ominous and grey, reaffirming a bitter end. - Ebyan Abdigir

Terror Pigeon, "BYOYOLO"
Terror Pigeon are the band that you should’ve been in love with by now, but somehow last year's Live It Up Before You Die It Up! floated by you. It’s like party music for people who hate partying but want to learn how to party. You know? Their video for “BYOYOLO” is more or less everything you don’t expect to show up on your screen when you hit play. But when you do, and the words “go and fuck the shit out of your dreams” grace your ear canals, it gets pretty real. If you’ve ever wanted to make a face mask out of fried batter, put on bondage gear outside of the bedroom and on-top of the piano, or play the human guitar, you’ll find solace in this music video. - Ryan Parker
