Magic by Edward Ruiz
I recently got back into performing magic . I decided to start building my own stage illusions. One of the first was this fun arm illusionette inspired by Larrry White's tri section Illusion.. The effect is that the magician cuts his arm into three sections and then lifts away the center piece.
Proof is shown of the disconnect and then all is restored.
Over all a pretty good effect . An oldie but goodie. I am so glad I decided to build and perform this Illusion. photos by Karleen ruth .

Currently residing in the Exposition Park neighborhood of Dallas, TX, the Oak Cliff born visual artist Edward Ruiz couples his current artistic interests in digital video mapping and real time sound analysis to seamlessly marry geometric sculpture, music, and mathematic technology as a means to create all encompassing sensory installations of sight, movement, and sound. Along with these artistic endeavors, Ruiz rounds out his repertoire with the mediums of resin cast sculpture, acrylic paintings, and character-driven toy-making.
