Automata is a collection of effects based on self working magic. WAIT - I know what you’re thinking... Counting and math, OH NO!!!
No Indeed!!! Yes, the principles behind most of these are based on tried and true mathematical principles which, in their original form, are not particularly performable, but take a look at what R. Shane has done with them!
The subtitle of this book is Self-Working Miracles With A Sense of Humanity! That says it all. Here are simple methodologies enshrouded in awesome presentations that make the "tricks" into magic theater that entertains, amazes and inspires. R. Shane begins each effect with a treatise on the original method and effect and then explores variations on the theme. R. Shane is also a master at finding a hole and plugging it up. He finds the "flaw" in a method that prevents it from being a masterpiece, and finds a way to seal that hole so the mystery won't escape.
In this book, you will find complete performable routines and literally DOZENS of variations on each one. This is NOT ONLY a book of effects ready to perform, but an exploration in creativity and adaptation.
Automata takes the effort out of the method and allows you to focus everything on presentation!
