21_21 DESIGN SIGHT will be held on July 2, 2021. exhibition" will be held. The exhibition directors, Yu Mizuno, cognitive designer Shunichi Suga, and curator Miyuki Tanaka, will work together to think about how to view, create, and use the new rules and what the exhibition should look like in the future.

Our daily lives are surrounded by different rules. From the constitution, law, and social infrastructure and services, to rules and manners based on cultural background, to habits that are unconsciously rooted in families and individuals, rules form our way of thinking and behavior.

These rules are now entering a major turning point due to changes in industry and social structure, and the evolution of technology. Because it is difficult to grasp the actual situation and it is easy to become formal, each of us is required to be aware of the rules around us, doubt its existence, and think flexibly about ourselves. By continuing to update our society and its future through the exchange of various rules, we will be pushing our society and its future possibilities to the more open and rich.

In this exhibition, we will explore from a multi-perspective perspective how we can create rules for living together in society in the future, in the way that design can be. For example, think about how to update laws and rules according to the times, and how to include minority opinions that are likely to spill over from rule formation. In addition, we will focus on a bird's-eye view of society by reading data, Civic Tech, where citizens use technology to solve social issues, as well as constraints that trigger new creations and possibilities, as well as laws and customs created by people's behavior. This exhibition develops the ability of each of us to face the rules and positives as a member of the future.
