In "Mutual Core," recorded by Björk for her seventh album Biophilia, the earth's geology
is a metaphor for human relationships. Eruptions and earthquakes, the building of continents,
the formation of mountain ranges and oceanic trenches: all are powerful signs
of the earth's structure and mechanics. Represented musically by the violent interruption
of block rocking beats, video director Andrew Thomas Huang here depicts the push and pull
of tectonic plates with anthropomorphized rocks, lava and sand encircling Björk in dance,
their psychedelic innards resembling the frayed strands of a Fritz Haeg rug.
