Lucid Stead - The Light Installation In A Desert
U.S. artist Phillip K. Smith III has created a striking and original piece of
installation art called Lucid Stead in the desert near Joshua Tree, California
that has been turning heads due to the graceful and beautiful way in which it
interacts with its environment.
To create the striking piece, Smith took a 70-year-old homestead cabin and
ripped out parts of the walls, replacing these strips with mirrors. These long
mirrors, along with the mirrored windows, serve to make it look like the
building isn’t all there – as if it’s deteriorating into the desert. At night,
after the building has reflected the stunning desert sunset, the mirrored
windows are illuminated by LED panels of different colors, giving the building a
new, more alien appearance. The pieces creates the illusion that you’re
observing the real-life manifestations of an impossible surreal piece of
