Heave imagines the multiple meaning of viral within the Zika Virus, and reformats the connotational orbit of Zika to instigate anti-fertility. The project was a site-specific web page for the online alternative space - Slayer Gallery.

The Heaving Suit beckons the Zika virus phenomena. Composed of various handmade nets,  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 suit recalibrates the virus as a positive.
