Hi, does anybody know what the name of the illusion in this video from the Pendragons is, and who is the creator of this illusion, and who has building rights?

Thank you,

Matt

Cubism, I believe. Another Steinmeyer creation.

OMG.... I think Steinmeyer went flat on that one!
Hmm, a GIANT WALL. I wonder where the girl went?!

Of course, Brian, but we are not discussing secrets here....... It is a cool concept for the box to be assemble in front of the audience, but you ARE LEFT WITH A WALL on A TABLE.... hmmm.

I don't think the wall is what you think it is....if you PM me, I can probably say a bit more...

It still is a large wall on a table! Is there something missing in the presentation? Reason, perhaps?? Haven't figure this out yet.

I have the same feeling about a giant wall and a part of it is black, and Pendragon rotated the illusion very fast to not see too much.
My opinion...Origami is better.

I hate to say this, as I have nothing but the highest regard for both Jonathan and Jim... but I hated it.

I agree that the back wall is bulky looking. If it is supposed to look like a canvas, I could buy that, but why is a canvas mounted to a table in that manner?

I like the 'painting' and the way it is supposed to look like Picasso or Dali or something. And though I like the way the box folds out, it looks suspicious to me somehow.

Also, I was waiting for a kicker. I suppose the silk banner production was...but I wanted more. It seems like stuff that we have seen before, but not as interesting.

This illusion is actually from a few years back. It was almost a natural progression from the Origami Box to Jim's latest illusion Op Art. It's an interesting effect ... something different.

My thoughts, as well. I have *HUGE* respect for them both, but this one just didn't do it for me.

"Blecch!"

Didn't like the pose the assistant had to strike during the revolve.

OK, I hate to admit, but I hated it too, and I generally love their stuff. I wanted a kicker, as well. The final banner production was so huge, they could have produced an elephant, and regardless of the method, that huge wall looks like it could hold an elephant too.

I love the concept and how the box folds out, but why a wall on a platform? Perhaps it makes more sense and is more deceptive "live".

If anyone cares, here is the patent for the illusion.

Is there any more videos of this illusion?

I've seen this video before, but the quality of the video is very bad.

How shameful they do something different.... Smile Kudos to them! And the wall makes the audience think, "I bet she's just hiding behind the wall." But then the whole thing is spun around, and she's not there!
