ASMR Étude

2018, Brass, plastic, copper, speakers, and recorded voices. Dimensions vary.

This is a musical composition that is realized by a viewer utilizing a wearable acoustic locator. Each speaker on the wall plays samples of ASMR (Auto Sensory Meridian Response), an experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin triggered by specific auditory phenomenon. ASMR is sometimes used to treat anxiety, PTSD, and insomnia.
