'Fegren of the Air'

Dublin, Georgia

The remnants of sheer survival in Dublin's monastery district. 


On one of the tallest buildings in downtown Dublin, Georgia, look for a marker that tells the story of the remarkable life lived high above the ground in Kcymaerxthaere.

Kcymaerxthaere is an art project created by Eames Demetrios. A series of plaques and other markers around the world honor events that have taken place in a parallel universe that, according to Demetrios, “co-exists to some degree with ours.” Most of these installations are bronze or stone plaques inscribed with stories but some are larger, even entire buildings. As of 2021, there are more than 140 sites spread across six continents and 30 countries.

These monastery districts were quite self-reliant and were connected by a web of lines so people could go from place to place without being exposed to danger. Particularly interesting to scholars was the connection of these folks to the culturaly aquatic people of the Fegrean Uhn in Oceanic Georgia–and how some of their values were cherished here as well. It should be added that the Fegren of the Air Monastery had some qualities in common with the Eqlmundi Kirwela (Culev Larsze’s tower of wisdom) but since it was intended to network with other monasteries, it was not a stand alone structure.

Update March 2018: The marker no longer hangs on the side of the building. The building has been renovated and has become the home of the City Cafe.
