The DRAEM

Hybrid interactive public sculpture for the centennial of the Armenian Genocide


The DRAEM (pronounced dream) is an acronym for the Danish Remembrance Armenian Empathy Messenger ‒ literally it is an unresolved or dyslexic DREAM.

This experimental project is part of a series of worldwide events coinciding with the Centennial of the Armenian Genocide. The specific goal is to create a temporary installation that would serve as a symbol of remembrance of the Genocide and celebrating the notion of collective empathy.

The DRAEM is an urban intervention that manifests itself through a 10 meter high interactive sculpture in Kultorvet square, downtown Copenhagen. The sculpture behaves as an empathy gatherer from all over the world by collecting virtual messages through social media that are translated in physical forms with a light display and message-embedded sound.

Taking the shape of a spatial vortex that connects both visually and symbolically the ground to the sky and the physical to the ephemeral, the DRAEM sits on the Kultorvet fountain and is surrounded by a circular bed of forget-me-not flowers. A website (theDRAEM.com) allows people to connect from all over the world to the sculpture by contributing collective empathy messages.
