Lucid Stead: A Transparent Cabin Built of Wood and Mirrors by Phillip K Smith III

Part architectural intervention and part optical illusion, Lucid Stead is a recently unveiled installation by artistPhillip K Smith III in Joshua Tree, California. The artist modified an existing 70-year-old homesteader shack by introducing mirrors to create the illusion of transparency, as the structure now takes on the lighting characteristics of anything around it. LED lighting and other custom electronic components were further installed within the building’s interior to illuminate from the interior at night. Smith says of the installation, “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.”

Make, Get, Do

At the moment I am working on a project with the public library in Kolding, making a Underground Library for young people. For this project we have produced these grid based shelves. Users of the Underground Library can form the shelves themselves by moving the sticks around.

iOS 7

Apple just finished their keynote speak at this year WWDC. They showed a new version of their mobile operation system - iOS 7. As expected they went for a major redesign - the largest change since the release of the iPhone as they say. Right now I really don't know if i'm into the very flat and Windows 8 like design. Maybe this will change when I get hands on and try it in real life.

Anyway.. Combined with the sneak peek of the new Mac Pro and the new design of the Airport Express/Time Capsule it could look like Apple is bringing a new design path to the table.
