There are a lot of things that symbolise the gap between generations, and right now ASMR is one of the biggest. Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is something you probably won’t have heard of if you’re over 30, but the genre, primarily consisting of YouTube videos of tapping, whispering, scratching and other strange, soft noises designed to provoke ‘sensory’ responses is huge amongst teenagers. This exhibition at ArkDes dives deep in to explore one of the modern age’s most curious phenomena. The museum is currently closed due to the corona shutdown, but you can experience the exhibition virtually and through talks and tours via various means on Arkdes’ website.
Weird Sensation Feels Good, ArkDes, on display until Nov 1
