I selected 150 youtube videos for this video installation. For the most part, they show hands of women tapping on various objects and surfaces with their nails. This phenomenon called ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) has not been confirmed by science. The ASMR effect is a tingling sensation in the head, triggered by certain sounds, that puts people into a state of relaxation or even trance.
The installation consists of three iPads that are connected to loudspeakers and a mixer. These videos, playing simultaneously, create a drumming sound space. “PEOPLE TAPPING ON DIFFERENT ITEMS” deals with issues of consumerism and intimacy in a post-internet age.
