We find ourselves in a pause between how things used to be and the unknown days ahead. The world is captive to a strange isolation while at the same time building unprecedented histories. The ordinary gulf between quarantine and community collapses. We are all alone, together.

Everyone wants to know how soon, how fast, for who, to whom, how many, how much. In the midst of massive revisions—for justice, for health, for reform—DesignInquiry wonders where gentle, considered, slow, and small moves can be found.

Prepostness embraces this moment of distortion, collision and pause for working together and apart, so we can give shape and meaning to our collective existential dread.

“You must go on. I can't go on. I'll go on.” —Samuel Beckett
