Elsewhere Public Works Agency

Elsewhere Public Works Agency

As part of a larger alternate reality game, I designed a website that emulated an early ’90’s BBS system. In order to interact with the system, players had to enter arcane commands that were even stranger than what bulletin boards required. I created a “typewriter” effect that emulated the action of a modem dialup.

The Elsewhere Public Works Agency website was active from 2008-2012. The archive is available at: http://web.archive.org/web/20120725234523/http://elsewherepublicworks.com/

The project is now documented by a film that went to the Sundance Festival in 2013.
