Demetrios updates on the Iconic shell chairs and Kcymaerxthaere for Cool Hunting:

In the garden of the Case Study House, Eames Demetrios—grandson of Charles and Ray Eames—settled in a shell chair to share stories of his family heritage and legacy, architectural preservation and the world travels he undertook to create his epic global parallel universe installation project Kcymaerxthaere. A few weeks earlier, Demetrios had worked with Herman Miller to furnish the Carondelet House built in 1928 near downtown Los Angeles to display the way the entire Herman Miller collection works together.

Kcymaerxthaere featured on KCET Artbound

Author and filmmaker Eames Demetrios is a creator of worlds. "There are things that surprise, even me as the creator," he says about his life's work as the Geographer-at-Large for the mythical realms of Kcymaerxthaere. To put it plainly, he tells stories, hosts lengthy discussions of Kcymaerxthaere's language and culture, and places historical markers at real locations around our world that refer to Kcymaerxthaere.

An otherworldy art project comes to life near Abilene

One slab at a time, an unconventional art display is taking shape on a previously vacant lot west of Abilene. Contractors are pumping red-colored concrete into a long, curving frame, which arches through a tiny copse of trees. A plaque commemorating the Museum of the Bench sits in a nearby Jeep's trunk, awaiting installation once the groundwork is complete.

Eames Demetrios: Legacy, Ancestry, and Future

I first became acquainted with Eames Demetrios through his work as a filmmaker: back in 2007, he shared with Boing Boing a stop-motion short about elephants that playfully explored a small piece of the legacy of his grandparents, the great American designers Charles and Ray Eames.

Mythic Environments: Robert Smithson and Eames Demetrios

When I first saw that this site’s new Flash Points topic was Art and the Environment, I immediately thought of two artists: Robert Smithson and Eames Demetrios. They are not contemporaries. Smithson, a seminal land art pioneer, died tragically in the height of his career in 1973. Demetrios, a currently active artist and filmmaker . . .

Discover Kymaerica: Theatre Or Performance Art?

In his own modest way, Eames Demetrios is probably the most ridiculously ambitious man you will ever meet, having devoted the last five years of his life to the dissemination of Kymaerica, his complete alternative mythology of our planet.

Whistle Stop: Sebastian Mary Catches The Bus To Kymaerica

I turned up at Man&Eve to find a Routemaster bus parked outside with the engine running. In the gallery, the walls were covered in maps, posters, photographs and artefacts showing what looked like parts of the world I know. But a quick look at the inscriptions was enough to confirm that this was not a tourist information centre, at least not for the world as I know it.
