Safety Suit

“Judging by the number of homicides, we in the West now live in the safest time in history. But people don’t feel that way. We live in peace but we somehow feel at war,” says Mies Loogman. To raise awareness of the discrepancy between real and perceived safety, and the effect of the measures we take to protect ourselves, she has created this ‘Safety Suit’. Designed to highlight the actual highest risk in 2017, that of extreme weather events, the suit also acts as a sobering counter message to the current dominance of terrorist threats in our newsfeed. It makes us reconsider what being “safe” means in our world.
