Since January 12, the Bureau of Unknown Destinations has offered temporary displacements to members of the public seeking to experiment with their migratory impulses, as part of our yearlong Migration theme. We are now delighted to announce that the Bureau has given away its 100th free round-trip ticket for a daylong train adventure. You may wish to visit the Bureau’s offices to see the results of some of these trips, as Participants were also given a notebook and a small, somewhat absurd, task to complete during their journeys.
Is it all over then? Not at all! The Bureau is currently developing the Psychogeographic Destination Kit to guide adventurers wishing to develop their own journeys into the unknown. The kits will be ready soon and will be made freely available to one and all. The kits will be ready soon and will be made freely available to one and all.
The Bureau’s offices are open for viewing during Proteus’ hours and will be manned by the station master, Sal Randolph, on most Saturday’s from 1-5 and irregularly during the week. The Bureau of Unknown Destinations is part of a three month artist’s residency by Sal at Proteus Gowanus, extending through mid-April.
