Hi all

Trying to come up with something utilizing a theme of the environment! Perhaps recycling or indeed anything to do with being green!

Does anyone have any suggestions or know of any illusions or routines out there that would fit the bill?

Many thanks in advance!

Something as easy as a large square circle made to look like a recycling bin or trash can can be easily themed to fit your needs.

There is gentleman who specializes in Recycling Magic. He works for Yale University in CT.

He is all about helping out other magicians and he happens to be an awesome guy. For ideas, I'd suggest you drop him a line.

I once saw a magician do a program with a barrel on stage with "Trash" written across the front. Whenever he was finished with a prop, he would place it in the barrel. At the end of the act, he picked up the barrel to reveal a Botania

Check out Penn and Teller's episode on recycling.

I concur with them.

I know this isn't an illusion but "healed and sealed" would work. That one you could even do for a subtle message.
Also in "Magic at the Edge", McBride has an interesting trash to treasure routine with a pull.

I have made couple of trash can botanias. I have also made a recycling factory with a smokestack that was botania.

Lots of possibilites there.

There is a nice effect from Axtell expression and I think is what you need!

The "Green Machine" is not a "Grand Illusion" but it's becoming a part of a lot of Recycling Shows. There is a discussion about this trick here....

It's also a great TIME MACHINE. Ax

Richard, I like the idea very much so and truly do hope for an uplift to be in the position to purchase one of your wonderfully looking larger flower effects this year. Alway clean, always green.

I know it has been used a lot, but "Snow" by David Copperfield was a beautiful price that could certainly be used to convey a message about global warming. (what will we do with no snow and icecaps?)

It's worth mentioning I think. Smile
