What if, in the future, we will be able to engage in interspecies communication, fix cities ourselves or measure emotions?

This autumn, the exhibition at Design Museum’s Gallery invites you to explore alternative scenarios for the future.
The exhibition is based on the Weak Signals report by Sitra that identifies and interprets the unexpected phenomena of the future, as well as their potential impacts on our lives.

The exhibition will feature interpretations of potential futures by seven creative professionals. Their works will offer us starting points for imaging different types of worlds and challenging existing expectations. Contributing will be graphic designer and artist Kiia Beilinson; designer Pasi Kärkkäinen-Tunkelo; video artist Irene Suosalo; sculptor, media artist Pekko Vasantola, industrial designer Dario Vidal, and founders of Femma Planning, planning specialist Efe Ogbeide and urban planning specialist Milla Kallio. The works of the exhibition will approach the future with the help of six themes: at work, at home, nature, city, decision-making and the metaverse.
