Responding to the Quiet

Here at TBTP we’re always keep an eye out for attention grabbing street art and dynamic installations. This mesmerizing work by California-based artist Phillip K. Smith III seized our attention immediately. As you will see from the video below (if you invest four minutes of your time), Smith transformed a seventy year old, deserted homesteader’s shack in Joshua Tree, California into a day/night exploration of light, shadow and reflection.

Smith draws his inspiration from the landscape, the reductive geometries of minimalism and the California Light & Space Movement. The resulting work is emphatically straightforward and eminently accessible.
