If Björk sings in the forest and no one’s there to Instagram it, well, everything’s going great.
The legendary musician outlined a pretty simple tweak she’d like to see in human behaviour to Pitchfork and suggested occasionally taking a breather to check out some trees and “do shit” instead of scrolling through Facebook.
“Maybe there are a lot of kids now who don’t know how to walk in a forest and do basic outdoorsy things. You can be on Facebook for a long time, and then you get a feeling in your body like you’ve had three hamburgers. You know it’s trash,” she says. “I always advise my friends: just go for a walk for an hour and come back and see how you feel then. I think we’re meant to be outdoors.”
Alternatively, maybe try taking apart your phone and see what it looks like inside. A tiny city, perhaps?
If it sounds like she’s against technology, that’s definitely not the case. She just thinks it should enhance your creative output, not inhibit it.
