As part of the VDF x Ventura Projects collaboration, Rapt Studio exhibited TABLE, a digital installation that creates an “experience of connection during a time of social desperation.”

When you take a seat at Rapt Studio’s TABLE, the digital installation facilitates virtual connections and encourages the audience to not only cultivate conversations but also to experience the cultivation of a living TABLE. This virtual reality experience envisions a virtual greenhouse that includes a table and chairs made from mycelium. Each seat is set up with seeds and gardening tools to evoke a dining table.

Rapt Studio was inspired by the belief that we can leave a space better than we found it, TABLE seeks to cross-pollinate design, human interaction, and nature in novel ways to create an experience of connection during this time of social separation. Through TABLE, participants are encouraged to make virtual conversation and connections with other people by sewing the seeds within the furniture, and observing its transformation into a “living table”.
