INVENTING THE IMPOSSIBLE by MARCO TEMPEST 

There are some performers whose artistry and craft transcend their genre and inspire the imaginations of millions. Marco Tempest – the world’s first and only “cyber illusionist” – is once such performer.

Marco Tempest talks about the use of illusion as a creative tool and how it can be used to bring seemingly impossible scenarios to life and envisage future technologies. The presentation includes examples of Marco Tempest¹s magical illusion work designed in collaboration with engineers, animators and programmers, discusses the value of open source projects and why illusion is an inviting gateway to social media interactivity.

Marco draws upon his expertise as an illusionist, humorist, and master of technological stagecraft to create a dazzling presentation that looks and feels like nothing the audience has seen before. This isn’t a “magic show” or a motivational speech; it’s an interactive, insightful and thoroughly engaging exploration of creativity, technology, and human possibility.
