Lucid Stead in Joshua Tree
Artist Philip K. Smith III has made a remarkable piece in the desert. Using mirrors and lights, he has transformed a 70 year old homesteader shack into something magical. Looking at it during the day, the mirrors fool the eyes and make it look like bits of the shack are just floating in the air. At night, the lights come on, giving the whole thing an other-world presence. You’ll find more info, and more pictures, at Coachella Valley Art Scene. And there are great looks at both scenes, as well as some of Smith’s other work, in this video.
