What is magic? | Tom Crosbie | TEDxUniversityofYork
 
17:16
“Magic”, despite being one of the world’s oldest professions, still comes with many preconceptions. Magic has long since evolved from the days of rabbits in hats, magic wands and cutting women in half, and yet people still often imagine a terrible children’s entertainer from their childhood, or a table magician in a cheap restaurant. Forget what you think you know about magic and take a look from another perspective. Aside from explaining how Tom managed to make the sun vanish, this talk will be an in depth analysis trying to define magic, and attempting to answer the question: “Is magic truly an art form?” “This is Tom Crosbie; he is a very creative, funny, clever human. As a magician he is very passionate about magic. His methods are often as impressive as his effects.” - Garrett Thomas, writer/consultant to David Blaine. Taken from the foreword of Tom’s book, Just Be Croz. Often described as one of Britain’s finest young magicians, Tom Crosbie performs magic professionally to audiences across the world. At the age of just 23, his ideas and creations have already been published in magazines and books, and he has produced two DVDs and a book. He has studied the art form since the age of four and Tom is now considered the UK’s and even the world’s leading authority on certain aspects of magic.

What is the art of magic? | Lawrence Hass | TEDxSMU
 
17:02
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Far from tricking people, lying to them, and deceiving them, I suggest that magic is an art form that celebrates impossible things, thereby energizing people to see beyond accepted limits and to imagine new possibilities for transformation. This account of magic performance overturns common misconceptions about magic and helps explain why there have been magicians in every recorded human culture. Lawrence Hass, Ph.D., is a magician and a philosopher. He is Associate Dean of McBride’s Magic & Mystery School in Las Vegas and is Professor of Humanities at Austin College (Sherman, Texas). Lawrence performs his artistic, inspiring magic at universities, corporate events, theaters, and nightclubs—from coast-to-coast in America and internationally. He performs regularly in Las Vegas and the world-famous Magic Castle in Hollywood. He is also a celebrated teacher of magic and an award-winning author of essays and books about the art, including his international bestseller, Transformations: Creating Magic Out of Tricks (2007). Dr. Hass’s work as a philosopher-magician has been featured in the New York Times, USAToday, the Chronicle of Higher Education, and on the Discovery Channel.

Creating the most influential you | Vinh Giang | TEDxMacquarieUniversity
 
18:38
This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. With magic as his metaphor Vinh will share with you an extremely powerful way to improve your presentation ability dramatically. A technique used by many magicians all over the world, it’s deceivingly simple yet very effective. I will tell you more about it this weekend, I think you will love it. I wanted to add as much value as I can and share my gold nuggets. This technique by far is one of the most powerful that I know that anyone can use and it will 100% dramatically improve their ability to present. A little gem from the world of magic. 2013 South Australian Entrepreneur of the Year, magician and professional speaker Vinh Giang has been building businesses from a very young age. Through his love of both business and magic over the years, he has discovered many common threads between the world of business and the world of magic. Vinh is unique in that he not only shares powerful stories from his journey, highlighting key principles of success; he is able to demonstrate and prove to a live audience precisely how real each of his lessons are, using the art of magic as his vehicle. Also being a presentation coach, Vinh firmly believes that a keynote is so much more than just content delivery. It is about bringing the content to life on stage, and each keynote is a performance that Vinh carefully crafts so he can create the most powerful emotional experience for the audience. By creating a fun yet mysteriously entertaining atmosphere through magic, Vinh is able to ensure each and every member of his audience remains engaged throughout his presentation, and each key business concept is driven home in a truly profound and inspirational manner. After all, it is about making the medicine taste good. Coming from the humble origins of a refugee family from Vietnam, Vinh has since worked with companies from all over the world, and is fortunate enough to be able to continuously learn from the best. Mentored by internationally recognised high achievers, such as Matthew Michalewicz, Vinh is always looking to expand his knowledge, and share fresh, cutting-edge topics with his audience. Vinh is fascinated with the psychology behind the mysterious art of magic, and has devoted himself to understanding the ways in which people are fooled not only by illusions, but by the tricks that life plays on us, and that we play on ourselves. Through identifying and understanding how this occurs, he has found ways to unlock the minds of his audience, and ensure his messages are memorable and will create lasting change not only in their businesses, but also their personal lives.??Hearing Vinh will open your mind to new possibilities, as he takes you on an unforgettable journey through his moving family story, remarkable insights into human psychology, business and the wonderful art of magic.
