Art, Storytelling, and Valentine Cookies: A Zoom Party with artist & geographer Eames Demetrios

Artist, storyteller, and geographer-at-large Eames Demetrios leads us on an exploration of a little-known language through an unlikely medium: cookies and crackers! Kcymaerxthaere (pronounced "ky-MAER-icks-theer") is a global installation storytelling art project that has created its own language from a parallel world--and it's a language that has been made into edible art with the help of some customized cookie-cutters. So far, the art project has 142 storytelling sites that you can actually visit in 30 nations. Each installation site honors events from the parallel world in our world. Most include written stories (in bronze, concrete and stone usually)—but it is not only what is written but where you experience reading the story (and, often, the forms that help tell it). Some installations are fairly elaborate—two are actually buildings, another is a couple hundred yards long.  This article does a great job of explaining it: A Bizarre Journey Beyond Earth’s Borders.

This special virtual event was made possible through the Ulrich's partnership with fellow university art museums the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art, the Spencer Museum of Art, the Mulvane Art Museum. The virtual event is free and open to the public, but registration is required to get the Zoom link. Click here to register.
