Emilie Baltz, “Why Foreplay Makes the Food (AKA: There’s more to a steak than beef)”
Taking as tenant that food is our most fundamental form of consumption, Emilie Baltz will discuss the dimensions in which food design stimulates both the head and heart of consumers and creators alike. Using highlights from her two (diametrically opposed) books Junk Foodie : 51 Delicious Recipes for the Lowbrow Gourmand, and her forthcoming publication L.O.V.E FOODBOOK: Le Libertinage Gourmand, Baltz will reveal the salaciously multisensory choreography implicit in food design.
Emilie Baltz is a creative omnivore. Working at the intersection of food, sex and design, she creates work that provokes our relationship to eating, drinking and f*cking through imagery, products, books and experiences. Her clients include Ebay, The Museum of Sex, Droog Design, The New York Parks Department, The Vitra Design Museum and GOOD magazine. She serves as faculty in SVA’s Products of Design MFA and is a visiting lecturer at l’ESAD in Reims, France.
