Kristina Walsh

Kristina Walsh uses design as a way to create a discussion surrounding social and cultural perspectives of the body, impacting human behaviour through footwear design and pieces that create new ideas of the human body. The base of her practice focuses on sculpting directly onto active bodies or life-castings, and uses a variety of materials including thermoplastics, metal and foams to realise the designs. Kristina’s work has allowed her to reach out and impact the wider community, including her prosthetics work being presented at the Inaugural Disability Innovation Summit, which inspired her to “continue exploring human experiences that are often shrouded in silence”.
