This chapter is concerned with understanding the idea of nature that Björk’s artistic output constructs. In other words, nature is understood here as a set of value-laden concepts, and this chapter explores the way in which Björk’s artistic output contributes to these. In particular, the chapter focuses on the way in which her output presents a unification of the human and the natural, and the salience of this idea within the contemporary cultural context of her work’s production and reception.
