The web home of the world-renowned Xenoterric Art scholar
Hello again! This is once again Dr. Ytterbium G. Bedcannon. Thank you for indulging me at SFMOMA, and for doing so well! There were things I felt like I could share with you that we weren’t able to do so on the premises, so I have worked to put this site together to put my extra notes. I would like to sincerely thank two individuals, Sarah Billet and Jimmy, without whom I would not have been able to share my research with the wide audience of SFMOMA.
If you enjoyed my tour and the journey of discovery you undertook, I would highly recommend looking into the Elsewhere Philatelic Society, who are hosting this webpage here on the Internet. You can find instructions on how to apply to the Society on their “home page” and also on their page dedicated to application information.
A motion picture!

My assistant helped me make a video. The camera seems to subtract 68 kilograms, but perhaps that’s a heretofore unknown effect of Xenoteric space!
I am pleased to discover my camera works in conditions involving dimensional interference. Perhaps I can utilize that.

How dare they!
This is hardly my fault. When an artist posts a piece of art made of chocolate and soap and the label next to it reads “Lick and Lather,” how was I supposed to know that’s a title and not merely instructions for participation?
ONLY TWO IN FIFTY CLEAN

Since I have this website, I might endeavor to keep some notes here. Take this, for example: from the New York Times, July 23, 1916 (Click this or image to enlarge):
If only I had seen this before, I would have noted it in my research into the human body’s reaction to licking a variety of stamp-like objects; perhaps I could have avoided the antibiotic series that was required from the set I found on the street, as well as that strange psychedelic reaction I had from those odd tiny stamps acquired from that colorfully-dressed man on Haight Street.

Sarah Billet has done amazing things again! She has managed to pull some strings at the San Francsico Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA) and has put my most recent curated tour in their upcoming exhibition at the Koret Education Center! The so-called ArtGameLab, which I find a curious choice of names; nonetheless I’m very excited to have my research acknowledge by an institution of this stature… Finally, the academic respect I deserve.
