From a reconceptualization of the invention, Tania Candiani created a lab to stimulate that moment of genius in which something new is found. Serendipia was a place where people were assisted by multiple materials –both physical and intelectual–, to come up with a creation and then registering it at the Patent Office Praxis in the Artium Museum with the aid of a draftsman.

This project was born during a time when invention could no longer be understood as a fragment of the future, but as a necessity to create an urgent present in which people could use their hands and their creativity; in which they could experiment and turn failure into opportunity.
