An exhibition is a gentle reminder

The future, and making policies for it, is abstract. Citizens have better to do than to think about it, but governments must make clear where they’re headed.

An exhibition, especially in a public space, is visited by anyone. You can’t know if a certain visitor is even interested, only scans the items, or dives in deep, because a certain topic is of great interest to him or her.

Public spaces can be quite noisy, in a visual sense, and really big. Also, the exhibits must be foolproof and easily transportable.
