Watching paint dry might be boring as hell, but watching it being mixed is absolutely mesmerizing. Just ask artist Iris Nan, who's paint-mixing videos on Instagram have garnered thousands of likes.
"Many people said it was very relaxing. I think painting in general is therapeutic," she told BuzzFeed. "My favorite moment in these videos is when the color finally turns out."
The reason people are loving these videos so much could have something to do with autonomous sensory meridian response, or ASMR. ASMR is a pleasurable response to sounds, such as soft whispering, or visual stimuli, such as painting.
What effect do Nan's videos have on you?
