Eames Demetrios, Director of the Eames Office, Artist, and Filmmaker, lives in Los Angeles, California. He is known in the design world for his work as director of the Eames Office, spearheading the successful re-discovery of the Charles and Ray Eames design heritage by new generations. The mission of the Eames Office is communicating, preserving, and extending the work of Charles and Ray Eames. He is also well-known as an artist and filmmaker. His current large-scale project, Kcymaerxthaere, is “a global work of three-dimensional fiction” that overlays alternative stories onto the physical world. Demetrios, the project’s Geographer-at-Large, travels the world exploring stories of imaginary peoples, movements, even physical laws—and then memorializes these stories on bronze plaques in locations as diverse as the Australian Outback and the bottom of the ocean off the coast of Scotland. In artistic practice that stretches back to prehistory, Demetrios is marrying natural sites with epic mythologies to inspire empathy for the planet’s plight, not by pandering for sympathy, but by creating a “fear of god” effect, a reminder that we are blips in a cosmic expanse.
