A desert illusion that marks a seamless merge between reality and imagination.

Out in the middle of nowhere, artist Philip K. Smith III replaced traditional wood panels with mirrored ones to give a 70-year-old shack a complete makeover. At first glance, the clapboard box might not catch your eye, but on closer inspection you will begin to question the tangibility of what is before you. Lucid Stead, located in Joshua Tree, seems to be hovering in the landscape, reflecting and refracting the “surrounding terrain as if a mirage or an hallucination.” The alternating wood and mirror panels give a surreal illusion that looks like the desert is cutting right through the building.

Once the sun sets, the shack takes on a whole new attitude. Vivacious shades of yellow, blue, red, and pink lights up the night sky in a spectacular arrangement of pulsating neon luminescence. Check out some amazing images of the installation below.
