SEPARATE TOGETHERNESS – A VIRTUAL MEAL

Isabel Prade, Kneissl / Prade

28.9.–7.10.2018

How can intimate moments be shared in spite of physical distance? A virtual dinner for two? In what way will communal meals change as our daily lives become increasingly digital? Already, digital media is bringing us closer together over great distances – though essential elements of interpersonal interaction are still being lost along this path. Increasingly, screens represent our companions rather than real people. But how can we fuse virtual and real worlds, thereby giving technology a chance to become part of our rituals? SEPARATE TOGETHERNESS will invite visitors to sense and explore the interplay of links between eating and technology through interactive experiences. Daily tasting experience from 29.9. to 7.10., from 5pm to 6.30pm.
