In late January of 2020, I visited Songdo, South Korea to explore “Tomorrow City”, a futuristic cement-land fabricated with rows of identical buildings, all elaborately programmed to accommodate the every need and convenience of its residence.

But it’s unaffordability and lack of soul converted it into a ghost city. While I was there, the Songdo port reported one of the first cases of the Coronavirus in the country. It made me question, if our future can be so intricately designed how are unforeseeable events taken into account? How is it decided what is best for us?

Through this story, I will be examining our relationship between the here and now and the unknown.
