Crystallized Books by Alexis Arnold
San Francisco-based artist Alexis Arnold creates sculptures, installations, and mixed media 2-D art that focuses on time, transformation, and perception.
In her series ‘Crystallized Books’ she immortalizes discarded books into crystallized sculptures, and transforms them into aesthetic, non-functional objects.
‘The books, frozen with crystal growth, have become artifacts or geologic specimens imbued with the history of time, use, and nostalgia.’ she explains on her website.
