Dublin, Georgia

Fegren of the Air

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

Created by Geographer-at-Large Eames Demetrios, Kcymaerxthaere is a “parallel universe that intersects with much of our linear Earth, but with different stories, creatures, peoples, even laws of physics and qualities of existence.”  It has been likened to a novel with every page in a different place. What makes the Kcymaerxthaere project particularly interesting is that Demetrios installs informative markers and historical sites at the locations in our world that connect to his world, creating real world intersections with his imagined universe. For the months of August and September, 2014, Demetrios acted as our first ever Geographer-in-Residence and his Kcymaerxthaere locations continue to be featured all over the AtlasTo learn more see our introductory article here

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 Kcymaerxthaereal times.  

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.
