Conjurer Paul Wilson sez, "Last Friday I uploaded the first of a series of short films and interviews featuring some of the world's finest magicians. These performers, inventors and thinkers include legendary professionals, modern masters and highly respected amateurs within the world of conjuring. The first episode addresses the question of magic as an art form. The experience of watching a magician ranges from the painful to the wonderful and everything in-between. At its best, magic is a truly powerful medium that can create unforgettable effects in the minds of an audience, from thousands of people in a theatre to a small group around a table. Future episodes will feature other aspects of magic and will hopefully offer fresh insight into our world."
Is magic art?
I write books. My latest is a YA science fiction novel called Homeland (it's the sequel to Little Brother). More books: Rapture of the Nerds (a novel, with Charlie Stross); With a Little Help (short stories); and The Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow (novella and nonfic). I speak all over the place and I tweet and tumble, too.
