Come to our next Standard Talk: The Heart’s Desire on Sept. 25th at @StandardNY!
/////////The Heart’s Desire:
Aphrodisiacs and the Magic of the Heart in Love///////
Join Emilie Baltz, aphrodisiac researcher extraordinaire and Nina Tandon, the heart’s scientist, in exploring the hidden inner workings of our bodies in love and lust. From how food affects our human urges to how the heart changes as its tightly gripped by romantic love: our bodies reflect our innermost urges, and this evening we will discuss how and why this happens to all of us.
Emilie Baltz is a creative omnivore. Working at the intersection of food, sex and design, she creates work that provokes our relationship to eating and drinking 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 is presently working on a fine art cookbook based on the relationship between love, food and aphrodisiacs titled “L.O.V.E FOODBOOK”, to be released in the US this year. Emilie serves as faculty in SVA MFA Products of Design and is a visiting lecturer at l’ESAD in Reims, France.
Nina Tandon is a tissue engineer at Columbia University and professor at Cooper Union. Her research involves the use of electrical signalling for directing cell differentiation. She spent one year working on an electronic nose used to “smell” lung cancer, and then completed her PhD studying electrical stimulation for cardiac tissue engineering. She is now continuing her research on electrical stimulation for broader tissue engineering applications, including heart tissue.

Spotlight On: Clay Shirky
It’s already time for our next Standard Talk, taking place June 18th at 6:30pm at The Standard, New York. We will be talking about Gossip, what it means today, why we consistently engage in it, and all other dirty tidbits you might want to discuss.
One of our participants is the incredibly talented Clay Shirky, media thinker and doer. Clay has taken to the internet to write about a variety of subjects, from the future of the medium to the evolution of the relationships we create on(and off)line. He is also the author of “Cognitive Surplus” and “Here Comes Everybody”.
Come this Monday and enjoy his enlightening insight.
Come to our next StandardTalk on Gossip. June 18th, 6:30pm at The Standard, New York.
What’s behind the rumor that has the city abuzz? Why do you keep telling yourself you’ll stop gossiping, but can’t? In the secret world of word-of-mouth, who can journalists trust and how do they source their stories?
Peeling back the curtain on gossip, we look at one of the oldest traditions known to humankind. Today, with the Internet exploding with information, most of it impossible to control, how is it changing and where is it heading?
