"Lucid Stead" in the California Desert by Phillip K. Smith III

November 25, 2013

Deep in the Joshua Tree National Forest, in the deserts of California, artist Phillip K Smith III has created a stunning installation/optical illusion called "Lucid Stead." As Bustler notes, "With some mirrors, LED lights, custom built electronic equipment, and Arduino programming, Smith transformed a 70-year-old homesteader shack into an architecture piece that complements and contrasts with its peaceful environment throughout the entire day."
