Artist Bedazzles Forgotten City Spaces And Invites You To Join In

Urban Geode is a street art series that adds whimsical beauty to broken and forgotten city spaces. The geodes peak out of the most unexpected places, adding dazzling details where you least expect them!

Like what you see? Urban Goedoe is open for anyone to participate in. Just email artist and designer Paige Smith, aka A Common Name. She's the creative behind the series.

Urban Geode draws inspiration from quiet, forgotten spaces like cracks in bricks, the grating of a drain, the inside of a pipe, or an empty phone booth. Anywhere small spaces have been forgotten by the city, Smith's handmade geodes creep in.

"Geodes are formations made and found in nature and my process of using manmade materials and placing them in major cities concurrently signals the tension between nature and industry and celebrates the beauty of urban space," she says. "My work is infused with a magical realism that encourages us to pause, to discover, to be present and to find beauty in the mundane."

Smith's Urban Geodes have been spotted in Dubai, Madrid, Bali, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Istanbul. Keep your eyes peeled for more!
