According to the jury, WEIRD SENSATION FEELS GOOD: The World of ASMR "is an interactive assault on the senses – in a good way!" The citation continues: "The exhibition successfully translates a YouTube-generation phenomenon into a physical exhibition. It is a physical manifestation of a digital experience, making the digital tangible."
Earlier this year, ĒTER were also successful in the public vote of the 2022 Dezeen Awards.

About the exhibition
WEIRD SENSATION FEELS GOOD is the first exhibition of its kind to lift ASMR out from your screen and into public space.
