Abandoned Shack in Desert Gets Colorfully Transformed into Reflective Light Installation
In the quiet of the desert, artist Phillip K. Smith III finds inspiration from structures weathered by nature and likes to give them a more contemporary look. Take this completely broken down cabin for example out in the Joshua Tree desert which got quite a colorful upgrade of LED panels transforming it into a mirrored see-through looking structure during the day that reflects that harsh environment surrounding it, and then a magnificent party of projected lights at night.
Smith III explains the idea behind Lucid Stead, “This project is about tapping into the desert, into the pace of change, and is about responding to the quiet of the place… so you can truly see and listen.”
