Quad Magic!

On Thursday night Quad students were treated to the informative and mind blowing magic of Mark Mitton – a professional magician and special effects artist.  Mr. Mitton is fascinated by using magic to better understand how we see the world and he provided small lectures about neuroscience, cognitive psychology and philosophy interspersed with illusions, mind tricks and impressive memorization tasks. In addition to performing at private and corporate events all over the world, and creating magic for film, television, the Broadway stage, and Cirque du Soleil, Mark tirelessly explores the theme of perception from an interdisciplinary standpoint.
