Budapest – Food designer Marije Vogelzang created a live installation called Eat Love Budapest, where visitors were fed by gypsy women.
In an intimate and multi-sensory event, each diner shared an experience with a gypsy woman, who fed him or her while under a veil. Diners were told intimate stories of the past without ever seeing the person who was feeding them.
This was a convivial, socially compelling project that crossed racial boundaries for a poignant experience. For more on how people are responding to social interaction and intimate events, read our Conviviality Culture macrotrend.
