You can explore Seventy States without leaving your bed. 

Solange Knowles Ferguson is a musician, an artist, and, at this point, a goddess. We don't deserve her brilliance and yet, she keeps going. For her latest venture, the effortlessly cool Knowles sibling brought her visual poetry to the London Tate Modern's Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power exhibition--and you can see the whole thing without getting out of bed.

In a gorgeous "interactive dossier" called Seventy States, the artist presents a collection of never-before-seen performance pieces; concepts for the "Cranes in the Sky" and "Don't Touch My Hair" music videos; an original score and performance called "We Sleep in Our Clothes;" and two untitled poems. In addition to all of this, the piece also features an installation by Ricardo Basbaum and is directed by Alan Del Rio Ortiz in conjunction with Carlota Guerra.

"I wanted to create a specific scenography through movement and landscape to communicate my states of process through this record, I decided to do this through a visual language," Solange explained in a statement. Check out Seventy Stateshere.
