Perfect Melon is a “community-building” marketing campaign from the fictional Perfect Melon beverage corporation, presented as an interactive installation. The corporation intends to cultivate a consumer community entirely mediated by the corporation itself. For the campaign, the corporation hosts a VR flavor experience in which attendees enter a virtual pavilion floating above an infinite melon field and are tasked to find the “perfect” melon. Attendees assess melons by slapping them, listening to their sounds, and sampling their flavors via a taste display. Once they select a melon, their choice is folded into the corporation’s commercial beverage formula: a mix of all chosen melons.
