Björk has become famous for trying out and experimenting with pop music, orchestras, technology, instruments, fashion and spectacular videos. She has challenged what people think a musician should do and has become an ‘artist’ in her own right.
Björk’s work is linked to her Icelandic upbringing. Her album Homogenic was packed full of songs inspired by the country. She stated that she looked at the rough nature of Iceland and its love of technology, and that she wanted to combine strings with electronic music to show this.
