Project Statement

ASMR Crafting with Sayuri and Gabby La La is a collaboration between visual artist, Sayuri Kimbell, and musician, Gabby La La.


Through seemingly narcissistic and self-promotional digital imagery, we insert ourselves into the permeable world of digital media – a place that ignores women of color creatives at its best and exploits and traumatizes WOC at its worst.


ASMR Crafting with Sayuri and Gabby La La is about reclaiming the female Asian-American body by pointing the camera on ourselves.


We challenge the perception of Asian-American women as silent sex objects by presenting manicured and fantastical visions of ourselves. Moreover, as mixed Asian-American women we play with our multicultural heritage in a way that is empowering and complex.


ASMR (Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response) refers to the tingling sensation of the skin, invoked in some people, triggered by acoustic and visual stimuli and transmitted through digital media. We were initially drawn to ASMR as an intimate and playful genre.


ASMR Crafting with Sayuri and Gabby La La challenges the narrow and dominant stereotypes of Asian-American women and other marginalized groups by offering entirely self-curated visions of ourselves. Down with the repetitive narrative of a powerful cisgender, hetero White Christian able-bodied male-dominated world. It is violent and tired.


We understand that our struggles are not isolated. So, to our friends who do not fit this crumbling narrative, we stand in solidarity with you. Let’s collaborate. #asmrcraftingwithsayuriandgabbylala
