Daunted by the title? You should be. Kcymaerxthaere is an incredibly imaginative, genre-bending project by Eames Demetrios, grandson of feted design duo Charles and Ray Eames. It's an ever-growing alternate universe linked to ours by plaques and artifacts.
Bring your imagination. Everything about Kcymaerxthaere aims to get viewers thinking outside the box. "In art there are many self made worlds, with people creating their own universe," says Halsey Director Mark Sloan. "This guy literally created a separate world."
Look for local links. The Halsey is exhibiting an overview of Demetrios' creation, and his art will be installed at the Old City Jail and in Charleston Harbor. He's being helped by the American College of the Building Arts, Charleston Waterkeeper, and students from Academic Magnet High School.
