for whom: Marco Tempest

where: TED.com

when: spring 2012

with whom: I rehandled a project originally by Zach Lieberman and used multimedia assets created by Kevin Blanc.

what: the performance uses a wearable see-through display to create an immersive augmented reality experience and bring the audience directly inside the mind of an illusionist; while Marco shuffles the cards and performs tricks, the software blends digital special effects and reality giving life to a story where the cards can interact with the magician’s touch, can fly away, disappear and even become alive.

media: you can see the performance here
