Certainly the magician must think about the importance of presentation and regard the trick simply as a means to an end. I enjoyed this introduction and look forward to future episodes.
Bravo, Alex!Artists of all stripes must, first and foremost, have something to communicate through their medium(s) of choice. So I always ask myself: "Is what I'm trying to communicate with my magic fascinating, provocative, and moving?" This is what I want from all other art forms such as music, dance, theater and fine art - something that engages, challenges, and moves me. Why would I expect less from the magic I perform? Ah, but is it art? I'll leave that to those who enjoy my magic to decide. For me, sharing what I love with others is validation enough. I look forward to your next thoughtful post. Peace. Mark Zust
