Melinda Lauw: Live ASMR Performance

Broadcast live on Twitch on October 24, 2020

In this performance Melinda Lauw explores agency of the audience and subverts traditional subject-object relationships in ASMR through storytelling, DIY craft, and puppetry.

Playing the role of a puppet master, Melinda turns ASMR trigger objects into living characters. You are invited to be her assistant, making decisions on a new ASMR puppet that is co-created during the live broadcast. The story includes a visit to a mysterious island and a tiff between Mother Brush and her new friend, a mischievous little horse.

This virtual performance was broadcast live on October 24, 2020. It was commissioned by ArkDes in connection to the exhibition WEIRD SENSATION FEELS GOOD.
