For In Company, we drew upon the site’s long association with hospitality and proposed the creation of a ‘virtual dining companion’ for the cafe.
We invited six volunteers and members of staff to share a one-to-one meal with us. As we ate, we discussed their relationship with Mottisfont and what they did there.
We are currently editing the recorded footage into bite-sized topics. The final work will be in the form of a touchscreen offering diners a choice of ‘companion’ to chat with over their meal or refreshments.
