A Common Name

A Common Name’s new Geode street art project fills LA’s urban gaps with natural wonder by recalling the interior of cracked open mineral geodes. These miniature installations made of paper sculpture – like the natural phenomena they refer to – are also subject to both the forces of nature, and those passersby who wish to take home a souvenir. A Common Name writes:

  A parallel aspect of these “geodes” in nature and in the city is they are always unexpected treasures. You might go hunting for treasures but you generally happen upon them during your adventures or casual interaction with the environment. I enjoy the fact that many people will not notice these, but some astute people will; that these will not last forever and the weather will affect them as naturally as it might in nature. So far I’ve made twelve—several have been trashed or taken away, and one has fallen apart due to rain.

 Visit A Common Name’s blog and website for more. And check out this enormous, completely beautiful, completely gratuitous geode.

I can’t tell you how much I love this project. It’s a very creative idea, and it brings a cool vibe to wherever these are placed. If you live or are visiting in Los Angeles, theirs a link on their site with the locations of where you can find these geodes. Check it out!
