Magician Eric Mead draws on images from science to illustrate two simple magic tricks. Mead says, "Magic isn't about solving puzzles, it's about not knowing...and having a little bit of mystery."
EG is the celebration of the American entertainment industry. Since 1984, Richard Saul Wurman has created extraordinary gatherings about learning and understanding. EG is a rich extension of these ideas - a conference that explores the attitude of understanding in music, film, television, radio, technology, advertising, gaming, interactivity and the web - The Entertainment Gathering
For more than two decades Eric Mead has been bringing his unique vision of mystery entertainment to audiences all over the world. With spontaneous wit and a natural sense of humor, Mead guides you to a realm where reality and illusion collide, and the impossible is made real.
Each performance Mead gives is unique - reflecting his unique point of view and eclectic background. He blends refined sleight of hand with sophisticated psychological techniques to deliver an unforgettable experience of wonder and astonishment. "Certainly there are ideas and laughs in the show, but really I am trying to transmit a very specific feeling to the people in the audience. To experience a deep sense of wonder for a moment, that's a very special thing."
In addition to his performing schedule, Mead is an accomplished writer and creator of custom presentations. He has written or contributed to 18 industrial and instructional films. When the Denver Museum of Nature and Science wanted to do a live action exhibit called, Life on Mars, they turned to Eric to create and develop the special effects required.
Mead's contributions have recently appeared in Penn and Teller's book, How to Play in Traffic, and Mac King's book, Tricks With Your Head. Mead co-authored The Art of Astonishment, a three-volume set of books teaching advanced conjuring technique. They have become international bestsellers in the field, and portions have been translated into seven languages. A new book is due out from Hermetic Press in 2006.
