Why What We Eat Defines Our Behavior [PSFK 2013]
Emilie Baltz discusses the complex experiences that we associate with food.
Emilie Baltz, author of L.O.V.E Foodbook, believes that how people eat defines how they behave. Speaking at PSFK CONFERENCE 2013, Baltz described working on the L.O.V.E Foodbook, a project designed to explore and provoke what the definition of food really is. Behind this is a belief that food is not simply an expression of a single ingredient, but rather a multiplicity of ecosystems coming together encompassing history, feelings, psychology and physicality. In order to explore these concepts, Baltz utilized her design skill set to expand the vocabulary of food in a visual storybook.
