Experience the skin-tingling world of ASMR in an immersive space.

ASMR, or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, is the sensation people experience triggered by sound, touch or movement. Often manifesting as a kind of physical euphoria, a sense of calm or a tingling in the body, millions around the world are part of an online community who experience ASMR. This is the first ever exhibition to bring ASMR into a shared public space, giving you the opportunity to immerse yourself in an acoustically tuned environment.

ASMR has given way to an emerging field of creativity – creatives, designers and content creators around the world are exploring how to trigger a sensory experience for their viewers. Explore how artists are using new and existing tools and materials to connect our bodies with the complex world we inhabit.
