Watershed's magicians in residence make mind-reading birds and open source magic

By Culture24 Reporter | 13 December 2013

Watershed in Bristol has been playing host to two magicians in residence who have spent the past two months devising new tricks as part of their residency.

Exploring creative ideas blending technology, interactive design, magic and illusion, Stuart Nolan and Kieron Kirkland have come up with a variety of experiments - from magic birds that analyse your personality to human electromagnets and open source magic.

Magical stuff or smoke and mirrors? Decide for yourself in these two short films.
