Uncertainty is now our constant companion; making plans no longer means anything. Anxiety is the usual response, but we can also see this moment where we have no knowledge or control as pregant with possibility – because what uncertainty really means is “anything can happen”, including blessings unhoped for and opportunities we never imagined.

In this piece that was once more inspired by a dream, the background square is made up of a word for “making plans” خطط . Through this solid and safe-looking ground, the unforeseen bursts with a chaotic but vital design of its own, opening doors for something new.
