Alexis Arnold, ‘Guia Roja’, 2013, Tappan

The crystallized books are intended to slowly alter in appearance over time. The crystals transform from translucent to opaque while the sculptural form of the book remains intact. In order to preserve the intended slow rate of change, I suggest the sculpture be kept (as best as possible) in a consistent climate with low humidity and normal room temperature or cooler, as well as away from direct heat and direct sunlight. Individual crystals may shed when handled.
