Proteoscope » psychogeography The Blog of Proteus Gowanus Thu, 12 Nov 2015 16:51:13 +0000 en-US hourly 1 Unknown Destination Kits Are Here Sat, 17 Mar 2012 19:07:12 +0000 The Bureau of Unknown Destinations’ “Psychogeographic Destination Kits” are ready at last. Having given away over a hundred rail trips to the adventurous, The Bureau now expands operations by giving travelers the means to unknow their own destinations. Everyone is invited to download a kit and test it out.

The Psychogeographic Destination Kit is offered as a provocation to potential voyagers, an invitation to take a day, get on a train, and go someplace you know nothing about. The kit offers a variety of methods of unknowing, some thoughts about why unknow, and a handy foldable mini-notebook to use in recording your experience. For those departing from the Bureau’s base in New York, there’s a pre-printed set of destination cards to play with. For others, a blank set to fill in and work from.

Unknowing your destination is an art form that anyone can practice. You are the author, the architect, the composer of your experience.

The kit is made available in the form of a downloadable pdf and creative commons licensed. Anyone using the kit is invited to copy, share, and adapt it freely, and to send their findings back to the Bureau to contribute to the ongoing documentation of the project.
