Geodes by Elyse Graham  - Synthetic versions of natural #crystals. #art

"Geodes have been objects of wonderment for me since childhood.  I was obsessed with the idea that I could go out into the landscape and pick up a rock that might just be filled with a magical surprise.  

I continue to be fascinated with the notion that seemingly ordinary objects have the possibility of harboring something unexpected and beautiful.  I am also interested in the geode as a time capsule—over time, a cavity is slowly encroached upon by outside elements, creating a history from the inside out.  

I build my geodes around the void created by my exhaled breath.  When each piece is finished, there is no evidence of what may lay beneath its surface.  As I create the piece one layer at a time, each time covering up the layer that preceded it, I have no idea what will reveal itself once the geode is split open. “

“Starting off as a peaceful night of protests, in Oakland; dancing and chatter. The men who we look up to, to keep us safe, were the ones throwing tear gas, and flash bombs at us”

“I just wanted to say that everyone who continued to march after the tear gas was fired are awesome and I admire you all for that. “We’re still here! We are the 99%!!! Very inspiring. Keep up the fight.”
