J Thoendell stashed this in Home
Part architectural intervention and part optical illusion, Lucid Stead is a recently unveiled installation by artistPhillip K Smith III in Joshua Tree, California. The artist modified an existing 70-year-old homesteader shack by introducing mirrors to create the illusion of transparency, as the structure now takes on the lighting characteristics of anything around it. LED lighting and other custom electronic components were further installed within the building’s interior to illuminate from the interior at night.
