A small table for enabling conversations around already present intearctions. The design is meant to be implemented at a local food event.
An intelligent food sculpture and centerpiece serves as a responsive interface for providing feedback on the food you're eating.
An illuminated tabletop provides a display through which information can be shared, and provides an interface for many people to interact with the installation at once.
The main goal of this project was to provide an engaging experience for guests in between rounds of food and drink, and one which would complement the natural behaviors of guests in this type on environment. It serves as an opportunity to learn more about the food they're eating.
