Creative work in exhibition design is based on a very long sequence of activities, relations, and cardinal and microscopic decisions. Many of them we can design but some just seem to happen out of our control. The sequence may work homogeneously but on closer inspection it appears to be heterogeneous. The world is constantly moving forward, even if the cost of taking one step forward is moving two steps backwards. The main goal of our work – in this case, a succesful exhibition – is not necessarily as important as the tensions arising in parallel or independently of it. To take both small and large risks, accept small and big failures alternating with small and big victories, is the necessary approach of a designer. That is progress: who does not take the risk is out of the game.
