Servasylvia was inspired by my interest in ASMR – Autonomous sensory meridian response. ASMR is described as “low-grade euphoria” beginning with a pleasant tingling sensation on the scalp that expands down the back of the neck. It is most commonly triggered by specific acoustic or visual stimuli, which includes light touches to the skin, soft voices. This performance was designed using touch, whispers, and taste to stimulate a sensory and calming response and ASMR for some .
“A sensory treat from the moment I put on the blindfold to the gentle hug at the end. I loved the whispered suggestions of what to visualise though to warmed objects being placed on my palms.
To be transported in this way in the middle of a party was surreal, delicious and highly memorable. The shot of exotic tasting alcohol, taking a sugar pill and smelling scents sprayed above me were all mini treats that sent me into a zone of delight! I emerged feeling transformed and calm.
Everyone is talking about it still!”
