Malika Green (Fall 2002)

My work is not confined within one discipline. I work between fashion, sculpture, and computer design. My selection of media is directed by my concepts.

My conceptual footwear designs reflect my fascination with skin, the body, and things hidden under surface. I am influenced by concepts of body modification such as implants under the skin to alter the surface of the skin. My flesh colored footwear designs look like extensions of the feet when worn. I am interested in subtle, unusual, and beautiful alterings of the feet.

My "Little Girl" sculptures reflect my interest in skin as well with their transparent and opaque layers and deals with themes of identity and innocence. I am interested in exploring my own nostalgia in relation to the little girl image.
