MoMA Acquires its First App ‘Biophilia’ for Architecture and Design Collection
Posted on June 11, 2014
The Museum of Modern Art has acquired its first downloadable hybrid software application (app). Björk’s Biophilia is an app and music album with interactive graphics, animations, and musical scoring. The app reflects the artist’s interest in a collaborative process that here included not only other artists, engineers, and musicians, but also splendid amateurs—the people that download and play the app/album.
Biophilia was designed in 2011 by Björk with Mathias Augustyniak and Michael Amzalag of M/M Paris, Sjón, Scott Snibbe, Sarah Stocker and Mark Danks of Kodama Studios, Touch Press, Max Weisel of Relative Wave, Nikki Deben, Stephen Malinowski, and John F. Simon, Jr. Biophilia.
