the eve online monument

wandering around reykjavik’s harbour back in march, we stumbled on this quirky trio of pillars…

Eve online

… which looked like a vaguely familiar monument for something i had read about… and then it hit me: it was the eve online monument! i remembered having checked it out on atlas obscura when researching the trip, so we did a double take when i recognised it. i’ve never played the game, but the fact that a real stone and aluminium pedestal exists to play homage an online game developed in reykjavik is pretty cool!

a nice touch: on the base of the monument, names of thousands of active characters (from 2014) are written, forever immortalised in metal. the makers of the game even made a tool to help people find their own.
