Tuesday, August 16th, 2011
There are some performers whose artistry and craft transcend their genre and inspire the imaginations of millions. Marco Tempest – the world’s first and only “cyber illusionist” – is one such performer. In this dynamic, innovative, technologically-sophisticated presentation, Marco Tempest shares his personal creative journey of creating magic in the digital age. Marco is an innovator who creates his own tools and technologies utilizing computer vision, AR, AI, pattern recognition, robotics and high-speed cameras to present some astonishing examples of modern magic. The presentation at Google NYC delves into the question of why, in a technological age, magic still has the capacity to fool us.
He says: “I blend the line between what is incredibly real and what is incredibly not.”
