Johnny Rojas

Rojas’ sculpture explores the symbolism in red heels. In movies and media, red heels are often used to signify transformation and dramatic change. This cinematic representation has influenced the cultural perception of red heels as symbols of transition. His piece references the "Wizard of Oz". Dorothy's red slippers in the in this  film are not heels per se, but they are a famous example of footwear symbolizing transformation.
