August 8, Geeking Out: Mind Tricks

Join Gelf at The Gallery at LPR on Wednesday, August 8 for an evening devoted to the study of tricking the mind—and a magic show! Alex Stone, author of Fooling Houdini: Magicians, Mentalists, Math Geeks, and the Hidden Powers of the Mind, will discuss his book about the culture of magic and the theoretical and cognitive underpinnings of illusion, and perform a magic show. Scott Barry Kaufman, a psychologist at NYU and expert on intelligence and creativity, will discuss unconscious intelligence and what we don’t know about what happens in our minds.
