Clive has had an interest in the performance of magic for over 20 years. He still works professionally as an entertainer. His primary interest is in the nature of perception and the psychology of how people see. The manner in which the brain allows perceptions to be distorted and altered is a fascinating area of study. The effects can seem to work wonders and the subsequent suspension of disbelief in the spectator is a joy to behold~ in addition there are amazing and fundamental changes deep within the brain that occur too.
