As a totally inept magic fan ( I mean I like magic, I have no talent to DO it) I have followed many intelligent & entertaining threads here-now I have a question:
I am a writer starting work on a short story about a team of magicians who create their illusions by interacting with animated holograms they project on stage. I know the technology isn't there yet (did I mention this was fiction?)
I was wondering how other magicians would feel --does it matter how the illusion is created as long as the audience is entertained or is there some code of ethics where using holograms would be considered sort of cheating? How would you feel if some new team came along that did this? Yes, they reveal to the audiences how their tricks were done. Hope that makes sense.
Questions? Comments? Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.
