Getting back into magic has been so much fun ! Having the opportunity to perform stage Illusions is a dream come true !
Right Now I am researching classic Illusions and re-vamping them with a touch of burlesque.
My latest Illusion is a classic known as the Mismade Lady .
The Mismade Lady has it's origins from an older Illusion known as the stacked box .Where boxes are stacked and your lovely assistant appears. The idea to mismake the lady came much later by an american Illusionist named Chuck Jones. Since then it has become a classic in magic and I am fortunate to be able to perform it and hopefully add my own personality to the Illusion.
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.
