Illusionist / Artist
Full-time performing artist
Chicago, IL USA
• A sensory illusionist
• An artist
• A magician with 24 years of technical training
• Sensory illusions
• Interactive magical performances
• Experiments and installations rooted in scientific oddities and sensory anomalies...
• I seek to create work to provoke thought, spark the senses, and elicit wonder.
• Our daily lives are wondrous and mysterious, and my pieces center on how dynamic the process of perception truly is.
• My vision is to take the art of illusion back to a high art, with the prestige it held in the 1800's by bringing it to the arts sector and presenting contemplative, personable works.
• I hope to subvert the traditional 'magic' narrative, both in form and content, removing the stereotypes of theatrical magic performances.
• I seek to provide the questions, and not necessarily the answers...
• The impossible occur in your hands
• Predictions for the future
• The invisible, become visible
• Reading minds look effortless
• Your decisions can create the work. It only exists because of you.
We use these illusions, sensory anomalies and scientific oddities to bridge everyday life to a special, heightened world.
