In this one I see first and foremost, a flower. With all the flapped wings as the petals, Björk as the style and the mask as the stigma. Gradient light sort of form a 'G' (for The Gate, I suppose). Some of those wings (I don't know how to call them) form either birds or seashells.
And on the other image, the one with the b, I kinda see stuff in the reflections, but it could easily be just random fractal images. Is this entire digital? It remind a bit of the :album2: artwork... where you detect the astronaut, the baby face, the telephone, etc.

i also see a flower/bird/feathers etc, but it also reminds me of a snowflakeImage
'specially because of the hexagonal shape of the "petals", idk if she's going for another icy theme though

I see birds flying around her. Like she's floating in the clouds or something

I see someone who has got a bit too click happy with Photoshop's filters and liquefy function. I don't like either of the covers.

I find it a mix of homogenic era outfit and kind of a chinese cheap costume made out of plastic, i dont like them at all. Hope the album cover has nothing to do with these....

I also like how from a distance it looks like a flower, which fits well with the album

The flash of light from her chest symbolises the wound being healed!

On first glance the artwork reminded me of the crystalline series

my first impression was that it is reminiscent of the post-era cheap-looking digitally-generated singles artwork (well, back in the day those were quite advanced, i suppose), but i don't mean it in a negative way, i actually quite like it

i do have to say i was not expecting a black background though, based on the descriptions we have so far, but it works and it gives it a :album11: vibe too

i love the optics theme: glass, prism, spectrum; i'm assuming the artwork is related to the video

the vinyl sleeve design vaguely reminds me of the vulnicura 3d 'logo'
