Most magicians aren't artists no matter how much they try to say they are selfMagic 33 Submitted 9 hours ago by We talk so much about magic being an art form but so many magicians put so little care and love into their craft they become tricksters instead of artists I see so many magicians have a billion different ways of doing triumph but not one of them makes the audience care about the plot Not one of them expresses any feeling from the magician Isn't that the whole point? Share something of yourself? Give an emotional feeing no matter how small? Why not just focus on a single method And make it as good as humanly possible Find the method you enjoy the most and perfect it Make it beautiful to watch You can tell the difference between someone who just cracked out packet trick to learn last second before his gig and someone who had worked for years just to perfect a single effect In my opinion the former is a trickster and the latter is an artist A lot of what I'm saying is derived from my experience with Tony Chang so I feel as if I'm not alone in this statement but hey what'd you all think? 20 comments share save hide give award report crosspost 0 points 6 hours ago op I 100% agree with everything you said I don't hate dealers because who can blame them for doing their job as a business yet they are a definite problem in the magic community as far as art is concerned The next big thing isn't going to be artistic for you because you're just trying to get a reaction and learning it in half a day What's going to be art is the piece you've worked on for years and are now finally satisfied enough to perform it permalink embed save report give award reply 1 point 3 minutes ago Didn't you know? Magicians aren't supposed to fail permalink embed save parent edit disable inbox replies delete reply 0 points 6 hours ago I agree that art can take longer for others than it does for some and that it's a journey I just don't particularly care for every magician calling themselves an artist Like no You haven't put in the work for that yet I think that art requires self expression not necessarily skill For example I could receive a picture of a stick figure from a five year old who put hours and hours of thought into that picture and call it art but I wouldn't call a halfheartedly drawn stick figure by an 18 year old art permalink embed save report give award reply 1 point 2 minutes ago H the same trick twice permalink embed save parent edit disable inbox replies delete reply You would think magicians would be better at illusions Meme
