“Visual ASMR” Short Film by Onesal
Tokyo CG boundary-pushers Onesal just released their newest self-initiated project they describe as “an exploration of tactile textures in nature” and an attempt to visually explain the phenomenon of ASMR.
From Onesal: “ASMR, or Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response is the subjective experience of euphoria characterized by a combination of positive feelings and a distinct static-like tingling sensation on the skin.
“The film takes place in four other-worldly landscapes we set up to examine up close the interaction, movements, and evolution of the elements with their surroundings inspired by elements in nature, architecture, and timelapse photography.
“The body of work delves into textural, tactile elements morphing and interacting with each other in surreal environments. The work sets out to blur the boundaries between nature and design, simplicity and complexity, in an abstract uncompromised way.”
