In order for any solution to begin, people need to first care about the issue. Airforce represents care for the air in the world, and ultimately reminds us to care for others. The idea came from an Air Force pilot jumpsuit and parachute, and it evolved from there. We need to be the force that cares for the planet we live on and the air that we breathe.


The suit draws attention to the fact that most people overlook the environment, and the result if we don’t care. My work represents the first step to change: actually caring. The first step to fixing anything is to recognize and care that it is broken.
