A Transparent Cabin Built with Mirrors and Wood

This is Lucid Stead, an art installation by artist Phillip K. Smith III. A 70-old homesteader cabin sits on Mr. Smith’s property in Joshua Tree, California. He removed sections of wood siding and replaced them with mirrors.

When you look at Lucid Stead during the day, it appears that you can see right through it, thanks to the reflection of the desert landscape. During the night, interior lights create a show of ever-shifting colors. Mr. Smith writes that observing Lucid Stead is an opportunity to share in “the pace of change of the desert.” You can see more photos and videos of it here.

Way down California close to Joshua Tree
Way back up in the desert with the sand and scree
There stood a log cabin made of mirrors and wood
Where lived a country boy name of Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play the guitar just like ringing a bell
