    Very cool. Very beautiful. 

    “Art is deception that creates real emotion.” I appreciate that. And, yes, that’s magic – in paintings, movies, books, music, architecture – anything – if it can deceive us long enough, enough to deceive the powerful disbelief we all have, drop us into a child state of wonder, then we DO experience something magical. Even if it’s just joy or laughter or excitement.

    -abs is pretty sure that this is just as much “magic” as any regular sleight of hand

    His timing and message combined were both incredible.  I cannot imagine how long it took to design, create, practice and polish this piece.  Wow…

    I really enjoyed that — it was very nicely done. Thanks for the post.

  6. “Art was the greatest deception of all” Imagine selling Jackson Pollock’s paintings for millions of dollars.
