Björk has revealed an short teaser for her latest virtual reality (VR) masterpiece, a new video created with long-term collaborator Andrew Thomas Huang for the Vulnicura track Family. Huang has previously worked with Björk on the VR film for Stonemilker, which saw the artist dance around the viewer in a wintery beach scene shot outside of Reykjavik, and Black Lake, shot in black, rocky caves and mossy fields in Iceland.

In the short teaser, Family appears to be further from the natural world than their earlier collaborations, with Björk appearing as a glowing outline, then multicoloured computer-generated silhouette in a shimmering digital world of light and dark.

The full VR film for Family is on show at the Björk Digital exhibition, which finished its run in London this week and has now moved on to the DHC / Art Foundation for Contemporary Art in Montreal, Canada, until 12 November.
