Translation is a process that supports communication between two parties that are otherwise unable to understand each other. This exhibition presents the possibilities for acceptance and embrace of this mutual incomprehension. Taking the role of translation as a kind of "communication design," a space is created that allows the visitor to experience the mysterious nature of language that we are unaware in our lives and the excitement of new discoveries of meaning or misunderstandings that emerge from this insight.

We live our lives surrounded by rules. Today, these have been forced into major shifts by changes in industrial and social structures. This exhibition uses multi-faceted perspectives to explore how design can assist in the formation of the rules by which we will live together in future societies, together with their roles and values. Instead of regarding rules as restrictions, this exhibition aims to cultivate a shared capability to approach rules in a positive way, seeing them as means to expand society, with more fruitful future possibilities.
