The magic of everyday

Run time: 18.00 – 19.30

The art of magic is based on deception, sleight of hand and illusions that exploit the blind spots, psychological biases and social conventions. Studying these bases can do more than just create entertaining experiences that defy what we believe to be possible. It can also help us to understand more about how humans gather information, organise themselves and experience the world.

Join Brian Rappert from the University of Exeter and Gustav Kuhn from the University of Plymouth to explore some of these illusions first hand.
