For the past few months Paige Smith of A Common Name has been installing colorful geodes within the gaps of crumbling buildings and other public infrastructure on the streets of L.A. Each piece is site-specific and made from carefully cut and painted paper. I think it would be pretty awesome to stumble onto one of these in the wild without knowing anything about it. You can see a full gallery of all the sedentary formations as well as a map of their locations over at A Common Name, and hey folks, don’t steal the geodes. (via present and correct)
