“Ferdinando Buscema: magic, wonder, and Boing Boing: Ingenuity” [HT Phil Legard, also] is a video including features of interest such as Erik Davis’ TechGnosis: Myth, Magic, and Mysticism in the Age of Information, David B Metcalfe’s Lullian wheel, Robert Anton Wilson, the art of memory, & more of relevant interest peppered throughout; culminated by an invocation of the accomplishment of the Great Work.
“Ferdinando Buscema is a magic experience designer whose work draws from mechanical engineering, sleight-of-hand, and his explorations of hermetic traditions. We couldn’t have asked for a more astonishing opening presentation at Boing Boing: Ingenuity, our theatrical experience that took place at a former Masonic Lodge in San Francisco on August 18. During his performance, video above, Buscema revealed the final secret of the Illuminati, and guessed my password, which I have since changed. We look forward to future collaborations with Ferdinando whose wizardry and warmth is an inspiration to Happy Mutants everywhere! Get illuminated.”
