    Abstract

    Meals have traditionally been a site for togetherness. We explore the opportunities to design a technology platform that supports remote guests in experiencing togetherness and playfulness within the practices of a traditional dinner party. Through both visual, aural channels and remote agency, the guests shared a holistic telematic dining experience comparable to a traditional co-presence dinner. Based on the findings, we propose that one must consider the social structure and cultural background of users to inform the design of technological intervention that supports a sense of togetherness.
