Derek DelGaudio, writer, performance artist, and magician, reflects on magic’s changing place in society and considers its intertwined relationship with technology. DelGaudio notes that today, most people view magic as a form of deception, but to him, magic is about creating a moment of astonishment and transformation by weaving hidden narratives into his performances. Through his unique approach to storytelling, DelGaudio investigates how magic can still exist in a world where technology is capable of unveiling even the most hidden of secrets.
