Emilie Baltz

Emilie Baltz is an innovation director and experiential artist who creates multi-sensory experiences one lick, suck, bite and sniff at a time. Best known for her work in using food as a medium (and metaphor) for designing experience, she works at the intersection of hospitality, performance, industrial design and technology.

She is an award-winning artist, author and public speaker with appearances at TEDx, DLD, PSFK Conference, Ignite Conference, Creative Mornings, TODAY Show, NBC, Wall Street Journal, D-CRIT, and more. Emilie is based in New York City and is part of the NEW LAB for emerging technologies & human behavior, as well as a founding member of NEW INC, the first museum led incubator for art, design & technology hosted at the New Museum. She is also part of the founding faculty of the School of Visual Arts Products of Design MFA program, and the founder of the first Food Design Studio at Pratt Institute.

Emilie is the author of the award-winning “L.O.V.E FOODBOOK”, recipient of Best First Cookbook in the World at the Prix Gourmand held annually in the Louvre, Paris; as well as the nationally featured cookbook, “Junk Foodie: 51 Delicious Recipes for the Lowbrow Gourmand”.

She is a Sundance Lab New Frontiers Fellow and recipient of the 2018 IDFA DocLab Best Immersive Non-Fiction Award for EAT TECH KITCHEN, a playful performance that critiques human behavior through the mash-up of food, technology and absurdity.
