Desert Shack Art Project

This Guy Transformed An Old Abandoned Shack In The Desert Into Something Awesome


If you'd been the one to stumble upon this abandoned old shack in the desert, could you turn it into something as spectacular and cool as this guy did? Artist Phillip K Smith III decided to get creative with a 70 year old homesteader that was found rotting in the desert. He called the art project Lucid Stead, and it shows just what can be achieved through a little modern innovation. Something old is turned into something very new! Check it out!

The shack as it was before Phillip got his hands on it.


Nothing much to look at, is it?





But wait, is this the same structure?


The cabin looks to be floating; it's surreal.


It's like a shimmering, magical mirage.


The project is composed of mirrors, LED lighting, custom built electronic equipment and Arduino programming.


"It is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change," says Phillip of his work. 





As the sun sets, the project begins to change entirely. By day, it reflects and refracts the light and surrounding areas to create an illusion.



And by night, the mirrors appear as windows.


The LED lighting beautifully illuminates the surrounding area.


It's almost like a disco in the desert!


Phillip's project went on display in California, in the Joshua Tree desert.


It was meant to be displayed for only two days, but due to its popularity the exhibition was increased to a month.

An Adorable Friendship Between A Boy, Two Giant Dogs And Some Horses   Every parent wants to photograph their family to document the good times (and also to show off a little bit), but if your family consists of an adorable son, two giant Newfoundland dogs, and a handful of horses and ponies, then you probably have better photo opportunities than most! Mom and Photographer, Stasha Becker, lives in Washington state with this diverse and photogenic family of hers, and she takes the most adorable snaps of her gorgeous gang! She started posting photos on 'Instagram' back in 2014, and she has since amassed a following of over 100,000. Impressive, of course, but it's not surprising that people want to see these incredible photos of adorable interspecies friendships. Here are some of our favorites, but if you go to Becker'...
Look How Street Art Completely Transformed This Neighborhood In Mexico   Up close, each apartment is painted one or two extremely bright colors, lime green, light or dark yellow, purple, orange or red. From further away, the neighborhood of Palmitas, in Pachuca, Mexico can be viewed as a riotous, giant and coordinated street mural. The incredible neighborhood beautification project helped to turn the formerly rough area around. The Mexican government joined with a youth organization called German Crew to create the mural, made up of an entire hillside of walls. The transformation took five whole months to complete, which is no wonder, considering its massive scale. The mural covers 209 buildings in Palmitas...that's about 65,000 square feet of walls painted. According to 'streetartnews', the project af...
