Coachella may be a month away, but a series of new artworks are already popping up all over the Southern California desert.
As reported by Curbed, the new installations are part of a series called Desert X, which features site-specific art projects by new and emerging artists, curated by artistic director Neville Wakefield and situated all over the Coachella Valley.
As part of the exhibit, Venice, California-based artist Doug Aitken created Mirage—a mirror-covered ranch-style house inspired by Frank Lloyd Wright and the American West. Situated at the junction of the San Jacinto Mountains and the Coachella Valley, Mirage acts as a kaleidoscope to reflect and distort the arid and beautiful landscape that surrounds it.
If you want to check it out for yourself (there's no address, just coordinates—33°50'59.6"N 116°33'57.5"W), Mirage will run from now until October 31. Or you can just scroll through the slideshow below.
