Lucid Stead is and installation in Joshua Tree, CA. created by artist Phillip K. Smith III.
Phillip describes Lucid Stead this way: ”Like the enveloping vista that changes hue as time passes, Lucid Stead transforms. In daylight the 70 year old homesteaders shack reflects and refracts the surrounding terrain as if a mirage or hallucination. As the sun tucks behind the mountains, slowly shifting, geometric color fields emerge until they hover in the desert darkness”.
