Conversation started slowly, 2018

The only thing pandemic has changed for me, is that, I do not know what could possibly happen tomorrow. Being not able to think about possible scenarios of the near future, is the only thing making me feel the chaotic situation, that pandemic had brought. ‘Tomorrow’ is disappearing for me. The present has become bleak, boring, devoid of any excitement. This deadly threat looming over us has made tomorrow uninteresting and predictable, but in a weird paradox, the future of many more tomorrows to come pretty unknown. As we are stuck in a state of constant waiting, unable to control our future, human mind comes into conflict with status quo and thrives for any change. I am wondering what the word ‘tomorrow’ means to other people being in isolation, without having any social experiences, how are the people planning the future, without knowing it.
In 2018, I have created an installation, called ‘Conversation started slowly’, asking a question : ‘do you know anything about tomorrow ?’ and at the same time answering it on the back side of the work – ‘certainly not. But why ?’. At that time I was stating, that the first question was an easy question to answer on, because everyday we plan what to do tomorrow, go to work, go to school or university, meet some people and so on, but the real idea was not about tomorrow, that comes in 24 hours, but tomorrow that is in the future, which is still so unclear and far for us. But after 2 years, even the tomorrow, that comes in 24 hours can not be planned and is as unclear as the future, which is far away from here.
I want to ask this question to many people : ‘do you know anything about tomorrow ?’, I want to collect all the answers and make an archive, collection of them, I want people to share their ideas, perceptions about ‘tomorrow’, how pandemic has changed near future for them, is tomorrow the word we don’t need anymore ?
