Break open even the dullest rock and you may reveal amazing quartz or other crystals in radiant whites, blues, purples and reds. This street art project exposes parallel formations in cracked concrete, broken brick and rusted pipes.

A Common Name – freelance artist and graphic designer based out of Los Angeles – skips two-dimensional methods to make 3D paper sculptures that morph to fit various shapes and sizes of empty spaces found walking city streets.

“A parallel aspect of these “geodes” in nature and in the city is they are always unexpected treasures. You might go hunting … but generally happen upon them during your adventures or casual interaction with the environment.”

Sure, they disappear over time – stolen, broken or simply washed away – but that is part of the point: once exposed, geodes are fragile and subject to the forces of nature, time and greed.
