You may recall an earlier post about eidetic images and how we can use the process of infusing imagined scenes with all our senses and an emotional force to 'magically' change things in the outside world. I was trying to link that idea with the process of memory-building taught in the ancient Ars Memoria, which I tried to describe--by example- in part II of this post, by introducing the scientist Charles Tart and an experiment he ran at Stanford University. One process appears to go backwards while the other goes forward, but really, both are attempts to better grasp the world you are experiencing and better direct your place in it.
In the post on eidetic images, I quoted from an autobiography of Nikolai Tesla in which he described his strong abilities in eidetic imaging and how they helped him with his inventions. The amaaaazing magician, Marco Tempest starts out with that ability of Tesla's and then describes some more of his history, using a magical technique that he's developed which merges image and books and artwork and photos and sound in unexpected ways. It's really a treat...Enjoy!!
On the TedTalks Blog, there's another video which explains how they worked their projection mapping with a physical pop-up book:
The magician himself, without Tesla:
where he shows amazing 'deceptions'.
