Let’s call this “Stunt Week” on the Ellusionist blog. I have news about a few magicians who, instead of performing magic tricks, are preparing for some significant stunts. We’ll start out with a Long Island magician who has decided to go without sight for a week in order to experience blindness.
Corey Martin donned on Friday a pair of blacked-out goggles and is midway through the weeklong experiment. Getting the idea from a sensory and perception psychology class, he decided to try to lead his normal life, only without his vision. His girlfriend, Elizabeth Ayres, is helping him out by guiding him and taking dictation for a blog that Martin is keeping.
Do us a favor: Because Corey can’t read right now, can someone tell him that we said good luck, and that he’s almost done, so keep pushing?
