WEIRD SENSATION FEELS GOOD is the first museum exhibition dedicated to ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response). It is, by extension, exploring emerging forms of wellness and tries to find ways to share this experience in a public setting (i.e. a museum). The exhibition seeks to bring both the body and mind to a state of comfort and higher sensitivity in order for visitors to experience tactile and audio-visual stimuli. The architecture of the exhibition is an attempt to synthesize the creative field of ASMR and its rich material world into a legible spatial language. The most common experience of ASMR is privately, perhaps in a bedroom, where a person might feel most calm and protected. Drawing inspiration from traditional spa cultures, flowing water is replaced by streams of contemporary media, aiming to create an atmosphere of safety and privacy in public, in which multiple people can be triggered to relax simultaneously. The exhibition design offers an acoustically-tempered environment, allowing guests to be immersed in a multisensory experience of close-looking, close-listening, and close-feeling.
