Seeing Beyond the Illusion of Knowledge
Jason Latimer has spent his entire life wondering about one question, “What is possible?” In the pursuit of answering that childhood question, Latimer’s ongoing education spans multiple fields of science including mathematics, applied physics, chemistry, perceptual psychology, and economics. Jason’s research, work, and performances have ushered in an entirely new genre of magic and illusion for the twenty-first century rooted in applied sciences. “…The secret to bringing impossible situations to life is wonder. …Wonder is the first step in the evolution of science, mathematics, art, medicine, and everyday life. Wonder changes the world. It makes us challenge what we know… I didn’t become a magician to trick anyone. I want to inspire wonder.” — Jason Latimer
Latimer has stolen the spotlight on multiple occasions as “one of magic’s most gifted creators” (Genii Magazine). Latimer’s imagination has developed a style of magic on an unprecedented level. With seventeen consecutive championship titles and awards for his work, including the highest honor the world of magic can bestow on an individual, the title of “The Grand Prix ‘Best Overall’ World Champion of Magic,” and the title of series champion of the BBC One’s six live specials, The Magicians, Jason has globally raised the bar to the classic paradigms of magic. His online videos have upwards of 10 million views.
Today, Latimer is a television star on The SyFy’s Channel’s hit show Wizard Wars. Latimer sits as one of three judges, along with the legendary magicians Penn and Teller. He also performs magic on the show occasionally. The show was renewed for a second season in 2015.
Also, today, Latimer is the “Curator of Impossible Technologies” with a weekly live experience at the Ruben H Fleet Science Center, the only show of its kind in the world, where he inspires wonder with magic and science.
With numerous other international television specials and appearances, Latimer has captivated audiences by offering live effects such as shaping water into objects then popping them, bending light with his bare hands, levitating liquids, animating drawings on his skin, forming smoke, teleporting people through time and space, and countless other jaw-dropping effects. Latimer’s infectious love for the unknown is inspiring millions around the world to join in and ask, “What is possible?”
