In his outdoor installation “Lucid Stead,” artist Phillip K Smith III used mirrored panels to make a 70-year-old cabin in California’s Mojave Desert blend in to the beautiful surroundings. The mirrored panels partially cover the building’s exterior walls, as well as the windows and doorway. At night, LEDs cause the building to glow in slowly shifting colors. The installation opened in Joshua Tree, California in October 2013.
