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.
It was premiered at the Chronus Art Center in Shanghai in Spring 2018.
