I’d like to start by clearing something up: I’m not trying to spoil, expose, or ruin magic tricks with this project. I can assure you that you can find all of this information online with a simple Google search. Another thing to clear up is that I am no magician. I enjoy magic and illusions; that is all. My intention is to show how we can sometimes be staring something in the face and not notice what’s going on.
Sleight of hand is an example of how magicians, con artists, pickpockets, illusionists, etc. use distraction and confidence to fool the audience into overlooking the details of an act. Especially with close-up magic, deceit is important to make sure the audience doesn’t pick up on the underlying trick. Here I’ll talk about a few techniques and how perception changes everything about how they work.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
