Emilie Baltz is an immersive experience director and artist who explores how the human senses work together to craft perception and meaning.

Best known for her delightful, innovative work in food & technology, Emilie uses food as a medium (and metaphor) for designing multisensory experiences. With 20+ years of work in design, performance, events, hospitality, technology and new media, her fluency as a leader across diverse creative industries successfully embraces both analogue and digital experience. Her expertise lies in using the 5 senses to tell stories that deepen engagement through embodiment; inspiring wonder through invention; and fostering world-class teamwork through play. Her work has been featured in the Museum of the Future in Dubai, NEW MUSEUM, IDFA DocLab, Sundance New Frontiers, Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum, Liberty Science Center, Museum of Sex, as well as supported by patrons, brands and communities that believe that art, design and imagination can be used to positively transform society from the inside, out. She presently is a Creative Director for Digital Experience Design at Gensler, the world’s largest architecture firm, where she explores how immersive experience and integrated technology can transform the human relationship to space.
