Kirigami by Max Maven
In a time where expensive gimmicks and fancy electronics rule the world of mentalism, Max Maven brings us a devastating miracle using the most simple props. With just a piece of paper, something to write with, and a pair of scissors, Kirigami delivers one of the most deceptive mind-reading principles we have ever seen.
Kirigami uses a very simple method so you can focus purely on the presentation. And, the effect is suitable for any environment.
Here’s what happens:
A piece of paper with 8 different letters is folded into 8 spaces. The paper is cut so that there are now 8 squares. Using a very fair selection process, a word is made up using several letters. It is clear to the spectators that many words could be thought of. Without ever seeing the spectator’s word, the mind reader correctly reveals her thought-of word.
