Gathering around meals is an essential part of social life for people. At the events open to the public, eight chairs are placed around „Flying Dining Table” where the public can take their seat, creating a circle out of the participants. Instead of having a static relationship between the viewers and the artwork, the active interaction with the kinetic object is an integral part of the artwork. The project “Flying Dining Table” blends art and social practices. The questions that gave birth to this work was „What kind of fun project brings people together?” and „How is this project catalyzing synergy of the participants?” I consider the quality of the artistic product and its social impact equally important. I believe the participants feel more connected through the shared common experience, when this occurs my project is considered successful.
