Here are some photographs from a street magician in Oxford. ‘Magic tricks’ seem to be something which can be enjoyed by people of all ages, although more advanced tricks are needed for older ages when people have more understanding of the world. People really enjoy trying to work out how the ‘magic’ is done.
This magician made two limes appear from under an empty cup, which was quite impressive.
Perhaps the idea of magic and mystery could be incorporated into my piece somehow. Magic tricks are something which are often considered suitable for children. Some magicians say that their parents are unsupportive, believing that magic tricks aren’s a ‘proper job’. However, I don’t think it’s socially unacceptable to still like magic tricks at an older age, as it is human nature to question things and want to understand how things work.
