Within the pages of The Pocket Scavenger, you'll be instructed to go on an unusual scavenger hunt, collecting a spectrum of random items: something that is miniature, a stain that is green, something from the year you were born, a used envelope, and more. Once your quarry is in hand, you'll apply an alteration dictated solely by chance: create a funny character, make it into a building, conceal it, add polka dots, remove a section, add stripes, scribble on top, fold, turn into an article of clothing, make it "pretty," and so on.

The results: you'll be forced out of habitual ways of thinking or acting, discover new connections, and try things you might not have done on your own, creating a version of The Pocket Scavenger that is unique, dependent on time, place, experience, and you.

ALSO AVAILABLE AS AN APP!

The Pocket Scavenger app encourages you to use your phone or tablet to actually interact more with the world around you. After completing a scavenge you can upload it to the map and see what scavenges are going on nearby, and share your finds through Twitter, Facebook, and Tumblr before embarking on a new hunt.
