For two months this Autumn I will be a Magician in Residence at the Watershed in Bristol working with Pervasive Media Studio, Watershed’s multi-disciplinary research lab, and The University of Bristol Computer Science Department to explore creative ideas that blend technology, interaction design, magic and illusion.
I’m one of two magicians to be given the residency. The other is the marvellous Kieron Kirkland and I’m looking forward to working with him immensely.
The BBC ran this nice spot on the auditions, Bristol Watershed auditions technology-loving magicians.
Here you can see Clare Reddington, Director of Pervasive Media Studio, joining me onstage for a demonstration of the power of subconscious memory. I’m the shadow.
