The crystals remove the text and transform the books into aesthetic, non-functional objects, but art pieces that makes us think about how immortal are books.The books, frozen with crystal growth, have become artifacts or geologic specimens imbued with the history of time, use, and nostalgia. The series was prompted by repeatedly finding boxes of discarded books.
