Saturday, March 3rd, 4:00 - 6:00pm
Join artist and writer Eames Demetrios for an intimate storytelling experience and exclusive first book signing in honor of his most recent book Kcymaerxthaere: The Story so Far...(Folio 1) at Arcana!
This Folio shares and highlights the Kcymaerxthaere stories that exist so far with an intimate experience through imagery, text, artwork and global community that makes the project possible.
For over the past decade, artist Eames Demetrios has been traveling our linear world installing markers and historic sites that honor events from a parallel world he calls Kcymaerxthaere. This global project is a vast, interwoven work of 3-dimensional fiction–like a novel with every page in a different place. Even where one reads such a page influences how one visualizes that particular story. Kcymaerxthaere also connects communities through shared interpretations of the stories in drawings, weavings and other crafts. Currently, there are 133 markers and historic sites installed in 27 countries on 6 continents. When Demetrios is not found as the Geographer-at-Large he is found exploring film, art and preserving the design legacy of Charles and Ray Eames as Director of the Eames Office. He currently continues his exploration of the parallel world in the hope to inspire people to see the world fresh–to see new possibilities in the world around them.
