YO AUDRE WE’RE IN THE HOUSE WE’VE GOT SOME TOOLS WE AREN’T SURE WHAT TO DO
What’s more terrifying: the Lovecraftian mythos of unfathomable, awe-some, and terrible forces lurking beyond human comprehension, or the notion that there’s just nothing at all, just vast and expansive nothing [inside and outside] this moment?
I’m on a like 2-month cycle going from loving my job from the depths of my soul to wanting to quit and do anything else, and I’m about to move into the I want to do something better that actually pays me a decent wage and isn’t full of absolutely insane political machinations (for a like 20 person company, it’s nuts). I don’t know if this is like normal, or if it’s just because I’m particularly impulsive, or what. (I really do like my job when it comes down to it, the working conditions are what gets me).
اهواك و اتمنى لو انساك

Amazing Transparent Cabin in the Desert
In the splendid beauty and serenity of the desert in Joshua Tree, California, artist Phillip K Smith III revealed his light based project, Lucid Stead. Composed of mirrors, LED lighting and custom-built electronic equipment, the cabin transforms depending on the time of day.
In daylight, the 70-year-old cabin reflects and refracts the surrounding terrain like a mirage or a hallucination. As the sun sets behind the mountains, slowly shifting geometric color fields emerge and produce incredibly beautiful colors that pierce the night sky.
Smith states, “Lucid Stead is about tapping into the quiet and the pace of change of the desert. When you slow down and align yourself with the desert, the project begins to unfold before you. It reveals that it is about light and shadow, reflected light, projected light, and change.”
