Title of video: OK?!, 2020, 3:26
In 2020, the Global Pandemic (Covid-19) suddenly placed a new question at the center of the great debates of “wealthy humanity”: «What if everything wasn’t really “OK” before?»
The disbelief at the dramatic event that overwhelmed us, combined with the late doubt, inspired the title of my video that combines the two punctuation marks in a single exclamation. So today I say that everything will pass! OK?! …I do not know. I can only hope so…
