The Heave Suit references the Zika virus phenomena. Made of nets, signifying the mosquito net and chainmail, with gaps large enough to allow the mosquito entrance. Interested in the idea of “holes” and “safety” the suit gives power to zika-borne anti-fertility. Agitating the abortion-stigma, the nets catch rather than repel, using the verb “ to heave” to retch a sigh of pregnancy relief.
