Daily Dose of Magic – Shawn Farquhar “Cards in a Balloon”

Shawn Farquhar (www.magichampion.com) re-posted this yesterday, and it is a fun piece of magic. This was filmed some years ago for Toronto’s “Breakfast Television,” and I saw this recording on his DVD lecture notes “Bread and Butter.”  I said it before when mentioning Shawn, but it is the sense of play combined with such beautiful slight of hand that makes him such a great performer to watch. That comment alone feels weird to write, especially when the beauty in sleight of hand is in what you don’t see. I guess the only other area I think of like it is diving, where the smaller the splash (the less you see), the better the performance.
