Artist, Phillip K Smith lll created an art installation in the desert of Joshua Tree, California. Creating the illusion of seeing right through the building, Smith used alternating wood and mirrored panels on his transformation of the 70 year old shack. This installation combines creativity and the natural environment to challenge the mind on what it sees through light and reflection.
“Lucid Stead is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change of the desert,” said Smith. “When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project begins to unfold before you. It reveals that it is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change. The colour of the door and window openings are set at a pace of change where one might question whether they are actually changing colours,” said Smith.
