Stuart Nolan

performer

Unique performances that combine traditional disciplines of impossibility with original research into how we are deceived by language and gesture.

One Thousand Mindreaders is a collaboration with a broad range of organisations. I will train one thousand new mindreaders in 2018.

consultant

Consulting, training, and facilitation. Mostly in technology development, tricky thinking, physical deception, attention control, and impossible innovation.

I also assess applications for government technology innovation funds and help organisations develop their business strategies.

speaker

I do a lot of keynote speaking. My talks combine outlandish interaction, improbable illusions, original scientific research, and impossible insights.

I’m currently having a lot of fun teaching audiences how to genuinely read each other’s minds by training their sense of touch.

writer

Co-writing The Magical: 100 Principles of Design, a book for all creators concerned with the magical, the impossible, the mysterious, the illusory, and the deceptive.
