We launched the app at the Republic Square on 21 February, and you can visit it by downloading the McKledin Fountain app. In this augmented reality app, viewers hold up a tablet or smart-phone like a protest sign and reveal a full-scale, 3D architecturally correct simulation of the original fountain. When viewers tap on a protest sign they may wander architect Thomas Todd’s stunning 18 animated waterfalls, including the infamous double waterfall. Sprinkled throughout are ‘memory artifacts’, such as koi, skates and pennies that trigger the Baltimore heroes who reminisce on protests; ladies trans picnics; anime costume events; being arrested; kids swimming; a marriage proposal, all told by rappers, activists, a former mayor, teachers, a hula hooper, architect and lawyer, who are among the featured heroes who remember McKeldin Fountain.
The Nonument01: McKeldin Fountain exhibition at the City Museum is open until Wednesday, 28 February,
but you can still visit the memorial at the Republic Square.

We are launching the temporary residency of the demolished McKeldin Fountain as part of the Nonument! Mapping and Archiving Public Spaces at the City Museum in Ljubljana.
The McKeldin Fountain in the centre of Baltimore was the backdrop for the first international art intervention by the NONUMENT Group. The Fountain, which more closely resembled a park, was designated by the city as an area promoting freedom of speech. Numerous demonstrations and rallies took place there, including ones by movements such as Occupy Baltimore and Black Lives Matter, after the death of Freddie Gray.
The fountain is also one of the rare few examples of architectural brutalism in the USA. Its original name was The Waterfall, since one of its primary architectural elements was water. It was designed to connect the Port with the city centre, which is burdened by heavy traffic. The McKeldin Fountain was demolished between November 2016 and January 2017.
The NONUMENT Group documented the citizens’ testimonies and created the NONUMENT01:: The McKeldin Fountain AR app, a virtual memorial to the demolished fountain.
The exhibition will present the story of the McKeldin fountain, and the participants of the symposium will have the opportunity to try out the app before its official release!
Nonument 01 is an international project created by artists Lisa Moren, Jaimes Mayhew, Neja Tomšič, Martin Bricelj Baraga and collaborators.
