Björk‘s Kickstarter has been canceled. The Awl points out (via Spin) that the campaign launched to fund the Android/Windows versions of her Biophilia app is no longer. It’s not so much that it fell short of its funding goal; rather, it was cancelled. The project stalled nearly three weeks before its February 27 complete date, reaching £15,370 of its £375,000 goal.
A message to backers explained:
We’ve decided to stop the Kickstarter campaign. Seems like the costs were too gigantic and we too optimistic, so it seemed cleverest to pause it for now. Things seem to be changing fast; perhaps in a year, even months, there will be a far cheaper way to reprogram this. We are extremely grateful for the help we got, though, and want to extend a big thank you to all our contributors, great and small. You guys generously offered your own hard–earned money to something bigger than yourselves that you believe in, and we are deeply touched by your contributions. Once again, thank you. We are still looking at ways of making this happen so send your email address to [email protected] and we‘ll keep you posted when there‘s any new developments.
