'Pezhephen's True Home'

Formosa, Arkansas

At a site that has witnessed many significant events, according to the fictional Kcymaerxthaere, it is best known as the place of lunar discovery. 


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.

As we begin to learn more about the incredible engineering feat which was the Museum of the Bench, we are learning more about the remarkable Pezhephen. Most people know him only from overly familiar use of the term Pejephen year, but the application of his (literal) vision to the area around what we call Abilene was quite essential to the success of the Museum. Less well known is the fact that his precise timing of the moons of Jupiter allowed him to also fix the position of his doppelganger who floated in the Ferylemt that surrounded one of what we call the Pleiades.

Update: We are sorry to report that this marker was vandalized and is no longer viewable in the flesh. We are assessing how to make its replacement more secure. It remains in the active database because a) the location can be visited b) it was a location of a significant event in the parallel world and, most of all,  c) vandals don’t determine the stories we tell here online.
