Odd Salon ILLUSION

The eyes deceive, the ears lie, and things are not always as they seem. Whether fooled by nature or elaborate artifice our minds can play tricks on us, even while we attempt to fool others.

Join us for an evening exploring the mysteries of optics, the deadly consequences of the pursuit of aesthetic perfection, the science of misdirection, and the magic of prestidigitation.

Featuring:

Miles Traer ~ The Greatest Card Cheat & the Mythical Sleight

Justin Oliphant ~ Mystery Spots, Gravity Hills & the Perpetuation of the Mysterious

Laura Rubin ~ The Illusion of Perfection: Fake Boobs, Fake Butts & Our Unending Struggle With Human Inadequacy

Patrick House ~ Pulling the Puppet Strings: How the Brain Tricks Itself

Tysa Rauch ~ Space Aliens & Deadly Beauty: Cosmetic Triumph & Folly

Paul Nathan ~ How Do They Do That? The Art of Prestidigitation
