The Bureau of Unknown Destinations has offered temporary displacements to members of the public seeking to experiment with their psychogeographic impulses. During its residency at Proteus Gowanus in Brooklyn, the Bureau gave away over 100 free round trip tickets for train adventures: day trips which began with the tearing open of a sealed envelope, revealing the mystery of where the traveler would find themselves by noon. The Bureau provided the opportunity for voyagers to set forth, free of decisions, into the great (or perhaps, in this case, the small) unknown. To test their sense of destiny. To have lunch someplace new.
The Bureau is currently at work compiling the results of these voyages and developing a Psychogeographic Destination Kit to assist voyagers in unknowing their own destinations.
The first version of the Psychogeographic Destination Kit can be downloaded here [PDF].
