Kristina Walsh is an interdisciplinary designer who uses design as a tool to provoke exploration and activate discussion surrounding social and cultural perspectives of the body and behavior.
Artistic in approach, rigorous research informs her work.
Her most recent projects aim to create new experiences and propose alternative futures with products that teeter the line between imaginative and implementable.
Kristina is currently an artist in residence at Sarabande: The Lee Alexander McQueen Foundation.
After completing Bachelor’s degrees in both Psychology and Art History at the University of Minnesota (USA), Kristina expanded her interest in the intersection of the human mind and design within the MA Footwear program at the London College of Fashion (UK). She graduated from LCF in 2017 and continues to explore how design can enhance the human experience.
