Reality as an Art


Reality as an Art (pre-order, print only) is an introduction to creating something so close to real magic that calling it anything else is a matter of semantics. It is a book that explores the idea of creating instant, powerful effects that are difficult to call anything but “magic” for those experiencing them as a performer, a participant, or an observer.

Reality as an Art shares an entire framework for creating phenomena that feel like miracles, but which are neither supernatural nor dishonest.  This book grew out of a research into psychology of abnormal experience and a lot of real-world trial and error. These are ideas and methods that I have not only used on stage, but that I have used with uniform success in demonstrations for medical professionals, neuroscientists, psychologists, card-carrying skeptics, drunk people, strangers, friends, family, people from different languages and cultures – pretty much any group imaginable.

I shared the first version of Pygmalion Effects: Reality as an Art in 2014.  Over the years that followed I gained a lot of knowledge relating to the material in the book, and I decided to release a new version called simply Reality as an Art.

The tools from Reality as an Art have been used by hundreds or thousands of performers, practitioners, and artists in the past 10 years. Many of them, myself included, use them nearly every day, or even several times a day.

There is endless hype out there. As much as possible, I want this book to go to people who are getting what they expect and will use what they get.  

Here is a full summary of everything in the book

Bought a past version of Reality as an Art, and wondering about the new material? Go here.

Who is this guy, anyway? This is a very new site (Nov 10, 2022) and I am still putting it together. You can learn a bit more about me and my other projects on my POWA profile.
