Trapped emotions form our subconscious mind. When they are neglected or forgotten, they cause unwanted emotions such as depression or anxiety. Thus, it is important for us to recognise and acknowledge their invisible existence. Could we handle our trapped emotions using ordinary objects?

The Store of Serendipity is a fictional place located in our subconscious mind displaying a collection of magical objects that deal with our trapped feelings. It explores the connections between subconsciousness and mundane objects through fictional narratives for various emotions. By making the objects wearable through augmented reality filters, Binnie Kwon brings her imagination into reality and creates serendipitous comfort.
