Last year, alt-rock-era sorceress Björk released the first-ever album-as-app, Biophilia, which allowed fans to conjure up their own avant-garde sounds to supplement her usual breathy chants, yelps, and coos. Lately, she has been bringing her sounds to life (literally) in a series of shows at Queens’ New York Hall of Science. Amid exhibits demonstrating the wonders of biology and chemistry, Iceland’s most famous cultural export turns the museum’s grand hall into her stage. It’s a show you can tell your mom you went to because (just maybe) you could walk out of it smarter.
