Chef Jenny Dorsey, Food VR Experience
Chef Jenny Dorsey is a professional chef & creative person based in New York City. She makes food toexpress the full range of human emotions - even thosenot well-suited for Instagram. Chef Dorsey believes food has a special way of exposing the banal routine & social norms we findourselves in.
At the beginning of 2017, she had an epiphany (at acupuncture) to use augmented & virtual reality to make her work more impactful. Ever since that strange day, she's been experimenting with these emerging technologiesand how she can marryfood with it in immersive new ways for social good. She has no idea where this road will lead her, what excitements & failures it has in store, but at least she'll never wake up & wonder "what if?".
Her mission is to use culinary arts asa platform to evoke introspection, empathy & real emotion. Sometimes her food orthe environments she creates make people uncomfortable, & that's the point. She doesn't plan on being complicit with the way things are; she wants to change the world with her art, even if it's just one honest conversation at a time.
