|Short Synopsis:||Emotion Inn holds memories of an old world trying to be preserved in the never ending space. It offers experiences that help understand the meaning of love and how it became distorted over time; how feelings are not an easy task for every life form. No matter the time or place, we're all bound to the same form of connection, headed in the same way.
In this world that Xander Zhou and our team built, each piece defines a different aspect. It is affected by Xander's works and aesthetics, and inspired by our mutual interests, varying from art pieces, and world views. We're fascinated by the future and the tech world, and built a bridge using the old and the new, imagining an evolved dimension that combines them both.
