American Artist has selected an abandoned Cabin in the deserts of California Tauheed Ahmad July 21, 2016 Amazing & Incredible 2955 American artist Phillip K Smith has selected an abandoned desert shack in Joshua Tree National Forest, in the deserts of California, and transformed it into a fabulous optical illusion art called “Lucid Stead.” The Phillip Smith took the cabin that has been gradually rotting in the harsh desert environments for seventy years, inserted mirrors between aged wood slats and created an illusion that you can see right through the building. Smith is excited and said; “Lucid Stead” is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change of the desert. When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project starts to unfold before you. It discloses that it is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change.” The windows & door of the building are also fitted with color changing LEDs which after dark, change into brightly colored rectangles illuminating the desert landscape. In the day light the desert scenery is reflected upon the mirrors making the cabin barely visible. “The color of the door and window openings are set at a pace of variation where one might question whether they are really varying colors. One might see blue, red, and yellow and continue to see those colors. But looking down and walking 10 feet to a fresh location reveals that the windows are now orange, purple and green.
