Elsewhere Philatelic Society Participates in ArtGameLab at SFMOMA

Games of Nonchalance offshoot, The Elsewhere Philatelic Society (EPS), is participating in ArtGameLab, a new participatory game experiment at the Koret Visitor Education Center at San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA). EPS, the “subterranean stamp society”, will present The Peculiar Scholarship of Dr. Bedcannon for their role in the experiment. ArtGameLab opens at SFMOMA on January 15, 2012 and will run through August 12, 2012.

The Elsewhere Philatelic Society is proud to announce the unveiling of “The Peculiar Scholarship of Dr. Bedcannon”, #7 in the Psychedelic Philatelic Adventure Series (collect them all!). In conjunction with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Koret Visitor Education Center, the EPS cordially invites you to experience the galleries of SFMOMA as Dr. Bedcannon INTENDED THEM TO BE EXPERIENCED. Have you ever wanted to question an institution’s extant reality? Dr. Ytterbium G. Bedcannon has! You’ll follow in his footsteps as he recontextualizes every object within the museum to match his whimsical and questionable views…

The Elsewhere Philatelic Society (est. 1895) is an interactive fiction project set in various locations throughout San Francisco and the East Bay, and is inspired by the Games of Nonchalance project. It endeavors to engage players in an on-going adventure storyline, to encourage them to observe and produce street art, and to explore urban areas in new and unusual ways.
