“GEODE” STREET ART PROJECT

by Paige Smith

"The past couple months I have been working on a street art project around the Los Angeles area. Rather than using traditional paint or wheat paste methods in a 2D platform, I’ve been using paper in 3D. These sculptures come in all sizes and fit in the holes of buildings and pipes found while walking around. The finished shapes represent geodes, crystal, quartz, or any mineral formation that you would normally find in nature, now in our planned out cities.

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 nine—several have been trashed or taken away, and one has fallen apart due to rain. Enjoy the images and feel free to hunt for the existing ones using this map of current locations.

I am creating art in custom spaces, less unexpected but equally beautiful.”
