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.
