Jamie Williams Psychological Illusionist
Many magic routines use combinations of effects. It is to be distinguished from paranormal magic which are effects claimed to be created through supernatural means. It is one of the oldest performing arts in the world. Opinions vary among magicians on how to categorise a given effect, but a number of categories have been developed.
Magicians may pull a rabbit from an empty hat, make something seem to disappear, or transform a red silk handkerchief into a green silk handkerchief. They may also destroy something, like cutting a head off, and then “restore” it, make something appear to move from one place to another, or they may escape from a restraining device. Other illusions include making something appear to defy gravity, making a solid object appear to pass through another object, or appearing to predict the choice of a spectator. (Wikipedia).
