Creating Magic

Updated: Jun 13, 2023

"The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead —his eyes are closed." - Albert Einstein.

I have always admired this quote from one of the greatest thinkers of all time. It is an idea worth spreading and worth repeating. Of course it is especially relevant and reflective of the performance of magic, illusion and mystery, and a goal of every one of my performances. Creating and appreciating beauty, perspective shift, wonder, joy, entertainment and happiness are the goals of a magician and really should be the goals of anyone in any creative profession. I consider myself very fortunate to be able to create moments of magic and look forward to doing much more in 2020...

- I really love this picture from a private performance around a month ago - it captures the first moments of a rippling wave of responses and realisations to my opening effect...
