The Bureau of Unknown Destinations’ new Psychogeographic Destination Kits are ready at last. Everyone is invited to download them and test them out.
The Psychogeographic Destination Kit is offered by the Bureau of Unknown Destinations as a provocation to potential voyagers, an invitation to take a day, get on a train, and go someplace you know nothing about. The Bureau has given away over a hundred rail trips to the adventurous, and now hopes to expand operations by giving travelers the means to unknow their own destinations.
The kit offers a variety of methods of unknowning, some thoughts aobut 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.
