Feel the Earth = Feel Like the Earth Feels.

The awareness of global warming phenomenon must begin with one’s self – with direct experience. The design solution is a simple simulation – Feel like the Earth feels. By designing costumes with intentionally cut-like hole(s) to make the wearer feels the heat of the direct sunlight that passes through the hole(s) onto his or her skin. And if that hole is sealed with clear thick plastic sheet – the feeling can be just like greenhouse effect. The position of the hole(s) can be placed anywhere such as – arm, upper back, shoulder – wherever that’s suitable or even on the cap – to make the wearer awares all the time by one’s self that global warming is closer than one thinks.
