Indulge your senses in an art-induced ASMR experience. Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response, or ASMR, is characterized as a pleasurable tingling in the head, scalp, spine and limbs, resulting from exposure to various auditory or visual stimuli. A growing genre of videos circulating on common clip sharing websites claim to trigger this sensation, some intentionally, others unintentionally.
