It's often said that seeing is believing, but many experiments and psychological phenomena are testimony to the fact that we don't really see the world the way that we think we do. Exploiting the gaps in our visual system, and the way in which attention can be controlled, is at the heart of illusion.
We have invited magician and researcher Stuart Nolan to host a workshop that will explore slight of hand conjuring and leading attention as well as demonstrating some of the methods he has developed with sports people that can help us develop skills to resist deception. In this workshop you will be invited to explore how we can deceive the ‘grand illusion’ that is created by our visual system, as well as controlling our own attention.
