Geodes in the City

3D paper geodes crystallize in the holes at the alley corners and the pipes. It stands out from the traditional street art with graffiti and paint. Los Angeles based A Common Name studio is creating their street art project at different little corners around the world. Be observant and see how these artificial geodes fit into urban landscape and weather like the natural ones. Discover treasures of life through another lens just like how a gem stone could be found before they are polished into becoming one of the brightest diamond in the world.

chris burden

Came across this documentary directed by Henry Joost & Ariel Schulmanon on artist Chris Burden and a kinetic sculpture that has taken him four years to build. This was filmed before the piece was moved to the Los Angeles Country Museum of Art (LACMA) where it is being reinstalled. We're in love with every detail and only wished we could have witnessed this in motion.
