Just supported new Kickstarter project by Bjork “Biophilia App“.
“Back in 2011 Björk’s Biophilia album caused a bit of a stir. As an album it was a multifaceted affair, taking the form of a standard album, a multimedia app that explored the relationship between art and science, a series of global live performances with custom instruments, and an educational program that took up residence in New York among other places.
The latest development in the album’s journey is a Kickstarter project which wants to bring the app to the Android and Windows 8 operating systems. The project will support the Biophilia Educational Program through the apps and through an open-source curriculum guide for Biophilia Educators, who use the app to teach kids about music and science using a format they’re responsive to.” says The Creators Project
“the biophilia educational program is a new way to teach children about science and music . it has met with success in many cities , sparking interest from kids and educators all over the world , from south america to east asia to africa . the most interest has come from students from low-income households and schools with underfunded art budgets , and the only way to bring the project to those people is to have biophilia reprogrammed for android and windows 8 . the biophilia educational project is strictly non-profit and volunteer-based , and that’s why we need your help . “
