Dining Interactions

Unique dining experiences to influence and change social behaviors


Dining serves a vital function to our lives; we need to eat to survive. But in practice it is so much more. Dining not only helps to develop our cultural identity, it is a common ground between people, embedded with its own set of rituals, processes, and relational customs.

Dining Interactions sets out to understand how we can leverage these customs so that we may intentionally reinvent how we relate around them. The final output is a series of dining experiments focusing on different social behaviors and a framework that outlines the criteria for making these experiences.
