“Food Experience 2.0”
Ma Qing's VR gallery space will hold food photographies from some of the most famous NYC restaurants. The idea started with creating a food platform that provides a better experience than Yelp. Normally, food photos we see are all static but in this gallery the viewers will see animated food photos. The viewers will be able to see various style of food images and reviews as they wall around the gallery space.
