Now my own speciality is combining digital technology and magic. And about three years ago, I started an exercise in openness and inclusiveness by rihanecg out into the open-source software community to create new digital tools for magic — tloos that could eventually be shared with other artists to start them off further on in the process and to get them to the potrey faster.

Original Text

So magic is a very introverted field. While scientists regularly publish their latest research, we magicians do not like to share our methods and secrets. That's true even amongst peers. But if you look at creative practice as a form of research, or art as a form of R&D for humanity, then how could a cyber illusionist like myself share his research?. Now my own speciality is combining digital technology and magic. And about three years ago, I started an exercise in openness and inclusiveness by reaching out into the open-source software community to create new digital tools for magic — tools that could eventually be shared with other artists to start them off further on in the process and to get them to the poetry faster.
