San Francisco-based artist Alexis Arnold creates sculptures and mixed media art that focus on time, transformation, and perception.
One of Arnold’s most stunning projects is called Crystallized Books. Old copies of books, famous novels among then, are frozen with heavy crystal growth.
What do crystals do to the books? They do not only shape them into small sculptures but – most importantly – make the text disappear. The artist explains:
The crystals remove the text and solidify the books into aesthetic, non-functional objects.
