One of the most intriguing illusions performed by Criss Angel is his famous ‘Walking through Glass’ effect. While there are many methods which can make this possible, his unique presentation is quite effective.

On our recent Destination Creation field trip to Vegas, I had the opportunity to attempt a similar effect in the master’s own domain. As evident in the following presentation, Criss won this round.

We’re very excited to have booked a Destination Creation ‘field trip’ to fabulous Las Vegas. We were even more excited to have gotten seats for David Copperfield’s show, when we heard he was arrested for being involved in a creepy and bizarre conspiracy.

We knew it wasn’t his creative integration of Enigma and Genesis classics into his show that allowed him to mesmerize all the girls. But our theory crediting his beautiful, thick, flowing eyebrows was proven wrong when the studio was called on to touch up proofs for his new advertising campaign.

The oldest of the performance arts, magic and illusion, seems to be once again gaining popularity. It’s refreshing to see that in a world full of technological wonder, where many of us take the science behind our conveniences for granted, we are still entertained by magic.

Much of my artwork you see at DC may involve illusion, but is not considered magic, since their creative process is apparent in most cases, ie. digital manipulation, obvious optical devices, etc. However, their relation to magic is closer than you may think. When creating realistic visual art depicting the impossible, the aim is similar to that of magic, only differing in its delivery and presentation.

Magic is an art that requires the same research, dedication and discipline as any other. When performed with the intent to entertain, performance magic becomes an art of illusion, tying in scientific principles and psychology with artistic presentation and choreography. The secrets behind performance magic have been used for many purposes other than to entertain. Such instances include people who claim to have psychic powers for monetary gain, using the art as a tool for deception. Because of this, many have grown to be skeptical of the art, even though the artist, to which they are directing their skepticism, may not have even claimed special powers.
