關於這場演講

Marco Tempest使用三個iPod做魔術道具,展現一段對「真實與謊言,藝術與情感」巧妙且深入內心的沈思。

 

關於Marco Tempest

Marco Tempest是一位融合了尖端科技與胡迪尼之天賦與表演技巧的21世紀魔術及幻術師。

 

為什麼要聽他演講

Marco Tempest充滿創意的將電腦合成圖像、快速切換的影片及熱情的舞臺表演結合在一起,為他在偉大魔術師殿堂贏得一席之地。22歲時,這位瑞士魔術師贏得紐約世界盃魔術大賽,讓他在國際舞台上嶄露頭角。Tempest獲獎的電視系列影片《The Virtual Magician》在全球數十個國家播放,在他未經後製及影片編輯技巧,使得街頭行人驚訝不已的現場手機魔術表演影片於YouTube張貼後,已有數百萬次的點閱率(請搜尋「virtualmagician」)。他在VIMEO頻道上展現出藝術的一面-例如最近使用高速攝影機進行的催眠系列演出「漂浮」。

 

Tempest藉由他的藝術,在魔術中加入了扭曲我們生活周遭真實科技的元素,創造了一個相當具娛樂性的方式。

 

他說:「我模糊了極度真實與極度虛幻的界線。」

 

「我不知道50年後的魔術會是什麼模樣,但我認為看起來會很像Marco Tempest表演的魔術。」

-摩洛哥公主史蒂芬妮

Marco Tempest 談真實和謊言(及iPods)的魔力

身為一位魔術師,我喜歡的魔術是運用科技來產生幻覺,所以我要秀一段我已經玩了一陣子的東西。它是一個應用程式,我想對藝術家來說很有用,尤其是對多媒體藝術家;它可以將數個行動裝置螢幕上播放的影片同步。我向現場觀眾借了三個iPod,向大家展示其中奧妙。我想藉此向大家介紹一些我最喜歡的主題:欺騙。

 

(音樂)

 

有一位我很喜歡的魔術師,叫做Karl Germain,他有一項神奇的絕技,就是讓玫瑰花苞在你眼前盛開,但他最令人驚艷的絕技是變出一隻蝴蝶。

 

(錄音)旁白:各位先生女士,生命的創造。

 

(掌聲)

 

(音樂)

 

Marco Tempest:有人問他對欺騙的看法,他回答:

 

旁白:魔術是世上唯一誠實的職業,魔術師承諾要欺騙你,他就會這麼做。

 

MT:我認為我是一個誠實的魔術師,我運用許多伎倆,也就是說,有時候我不得不對觀眾說謊。我對此感到歉疚,但人們每天都在說謊。

 

(電話鈴響)等一下。

 

電話中的女生:嘿,你在哪?

 

MT:大塞車啊!我快要到了。你們一定都做過像這樣的事吧?

 

(笑聲)

 

女士: 我馬上就好,親愛的。

 

男士:這正是我想要的。

 

女士:你真棒!

 

MT:欺騙,是生活中的基本部份。民意調查顯示,男性說謊的次數比女性多兩倍;假設這些受訪女性說的都是真話。

 

(笑聲)

 

我們欺騙他人是為了取得優勢以及隱藏弱點。中國戰略家孫子說,兵者,詭道也。王爾德說,愛情也是如此。

 

有些人為了錢行騙。我們來玩一個遊戲。三張卡,三次機會。

 

旁白:押5得10,押10得20。現在,紅心Q在哪?紅心皇后在哪?

 

MT:這張嗎?抱歉,你輸了。嗯,我並沒有騙你,是你騙了自己。自我欺騙就是我們說服自己謊言是真的,有時很難分辨兩者間的不同。強迫性賭徒就是自我欺騙專家。(吃角子老虎聲音)他們相信自己一定會贏,卻忘了自己輸的時候。

 

大腦擅長遺忘事物,不好的經驗總是很快就忘了,不好的經驗很快就消失了,這就是為什麼在這浩瀚的宇宙中,我們無可救藥的樂觀,我們的自我欺騙成了一種肯定性的錯覺。為什麼電影可以帶我們進行一段非凡的大冒險?為什麼我們相信羅密歐說他愛茱麗葉?為什麼簡單的音符可以串聯起來成為一首奏鳴曲,令人產生無限遐想?

 

這首曲子是「月光」,作曲家叫做德布西,他說藝術是世上最偉大的騙術。藝術是一種欺騙,卻讓你產生真實的感動。謊言創造真實。當你陷入如此的騙局時,這就成了魔術。

 

(掌聲)

 

謝謝,非常感謝。

About this Talk

Using three iPods like magical props, Marco Tempest spins a clever, surprisingly heartfelt meditation on truth and lies, art and emotion.

About the Speaker

A magician and illusionist for the 21st century, Marco Tempest blends cutting-edge technology with the flair and showmanship of Houdini. Full bio and more links

Transcript

So the type of magic I like, and I'm a magician, is a magic that uses technology to create illusions. So I would like to show you something I've been working on. It's an application that I think will be useful for artists -- multimedia artists in particular. It synchronizes videos across multiple screens of mobile devices. And I borrowed these three iPods from people here in the audience to show you what I mean. And I'm going to use them to tell you a little bit about my favorite subject: deception.

(Music)

One of my favorite magicians is Karl Germain. He had this wonderful trick where a rosebush would bloom right in front of your eyes. But it was his production of a butterfly that was the most beautiful.

(Recording) Announcer: Ladies and gentlemen, the creation of life.

(Applause)

(Music)

Marco Tempest: When asked about deception, he said this:

Announcer: Magic is the only honest profession. A magician promises to deceive you -- and he does.

MT: I like to think of myself as an honest magician. I use a lot of tricks, which means that sometimes I have to lie to you. Now I feel bad about that. But people lie every day.

(Ringing) Hold on.

Girl in Phone: Hey, where are you?

MT: Stuck in traffic. I'll be there soon. You've all done it.

(Laughter)

Lady: I'll be ready in just a minute, darling.

Man: It's just what I've always wanted.

Woman: You were great.

MT: Deception, it's a fundamental part of life. Now polls show that men tell twice as many lies as women -- assuming the women they ask told the truth.

(Laughing)

We deceive to gain advantage and to hide our weaknesses. The Chinese general Sun Tzu said that all war was based on deception. Oscar Wilde said the same thing of romance.

Some people deceive for money. Let's play a game. Three cards, three chances.

Announcer: One five will get you 10, 10 will get you 20. Now where's the lady? Where is the queen?

MT: This one? Sorry. You lose. Well, I didn't deceive you. You deceived yourself. Self-deception. That's when we convince ourselves that a lie is the truth. Sometimes it's hard to tell the two apart. Compulsive gamblers are experts at self-deception. (Slot machine noise) They believe they can win. They forget the times they lose.

The brain is very good at forgetting. Bad experiences are quickly forgotten. Bad experiences quickly disappear. Which is why in this vast and lonely cosmos, we are so wonderfully optimistic. Our self-deception becomes a positive illusion -- why movies are able to take us onto extraordinary adventures; why we believe Romeo when he says he loves Juliet; and why single notes of music, when played together, become a sonata and conjure up meaning.

That's "Clair de Lune." Its composer called Debussy said that art was the greatest deception of all. Art is a deception that creates real emotions -- a lie that creates a truth. And when you give yourself over to that deception, it becomes magic.

(Applause)

Thank you. Thank you very much.

(Applause)

差不多改變了我對於魔術就是騙術的想法,魔術可以作為視覺藝術的呈現,具有演講者所謂的“誠實”,同時最大的吸引力是它的神秘感。
