Shared Meals uses immersive video-conferencing environments called Portals to bring diners in two distant locations together around what appears to be one long table stretching through the Internet. Discussion about the food itself has served as an entry-point into deeper conversations on more sensitive subjects, from personal experiences fleeing Syria or Mosul to the realities of life on the U.S.-Mexico border. By sharing a space and breaking bread together, we bring strangers together in a way that has inspired empathy and a sense of shared humanity.
