Enlightenment - Ben Harris
The Ultimate Floating Card
"The Power Of Enlightenment" is not "the talent for acquiring wisdom"—as one might assume. Rather, it is the rarely seen ability to make any given object incrementally lighter—sometimes to the point of defying gravity—to "enlighten". Here's the key effect: A spectator shuffles the deck and nominates any of the cards as her favourite card. This card is removed, examined and placed face up onto the top of the shuffled deck. The spectator HOLDS THE DECK IN HER OUTSTRETCHED HAND. On the performer's command, the selected card slowly breaks free from the vice-like grip of gravity—rises into the air—floats for as long as the performer wants, and then slowly descends. So freaked-out is the spectator that she breaks with protocol and reaches for the selected card—turning it over—looking for some secret. NOTHING IS FOUND! It simply looks amazing. Spooky. Hauntingly beautiful.
Amazing magnetic control feels like "real magic!"
- Spectator handles the cards throughout.
- Performable in the spectator's hand, on the table or in your hand.
- SELF-CONTAINED: nothing added or taken away.
- Can be repeated with another card and without any reset.
- Can be performed surrounded.
- Spectator may keep card as souvenir.
- A paradigm shift in magic with magnets
The principle is completely NEW. Ben Harris has spent 25 years developing the concept and making it practical. The final result, we predict, will revolutionize how magnets are used in our art. Just imagine: thread-free levitation effects with any flat, small objects—
- DOLLAR BILLS (any currency)
- DRIVER'S LICENSES, etc
