The Aerobanquets are immersive, sensorial VR dinner experiences transforming the perception of taste into abstract digital graphics. Players eat 11 Italian dishes cooked by the chef, while they wear the Oculus headset. The headsets show players 8 surreal scenes one by one triggered by the action of finishing each dish. The virtual storytelling is designed loosely based on the fictional ‘banquets’ described in the 1932’s Futurist Cookbook by Italian artist Filippo Marinetti.

"Zsa Zsa’s role was facilitating constant communication with her teammates. Every day, she participates in the meetings focused on clarifying and achieving specific goals. She is not afraid to ask questions nor receive feedback on her creations. Moreover, she has shown strong creative skills. An example of this is the jewelry gift box theme that she created for the bonus game. This innovative feature was stand-out in terms of concept, color choice, and graphic design."
