I’m also really excited to have been introduced to Pollie Barden, a PhD student at Queen Mary in London. She’s doing a project on remote dinner parties using projectors to enable communication between two separate dining environments.
Last week she ran one between Barcelona and London and I was lucky enough to see the live stream from each. We’re going to run one here in Culture Lab next month. I’m hoping I can have my final project fairly concrete by then, to hopefully run it past the group and see what they think.
I think there are a lot of correlations in our research so it’s going to be really interesting. You can read more about Telematic Dinner Parties on her blog.
