There are only so many things that can be done to an object.

Without concern for method, and maybe not even concern for any object in particular.
What do you think would be a classic sequence? One that is proven to build nicely and feel satisfying to watch.

Using the following list, or something similar, design an act:
-produce (or reveal)
-vanish (or continue to hide)
-split (multiply)
-teleport (vanish from here, appear there)
-transform (color change, new object, etc.)
-- destroy and repair
-levitate
-discard, (or put away).

Did I miss any?

For example, here is a quick sequence (leaving out all presentation and method details):
====================
Introduce the hands, produce (1) and display, vanish (0), produce (1), vanish (0), produce (1),
split (2), put one away (1), split (2), put away (1), split (2), put away (1), split (2),
produce (3), produce (4), until hand is full
put away all,
produce, produce, produce, produce,
put away all,
produce instant handfull, split into 2 hands full
put away all but one
Transform into new object

Sadly, I didn't get a color change in there. (I was thinking of billiard balls by the way)
I plan to deconstruct a few fism acts into these components to learn more.

Very interesting. Could you do this kind of thing from Soma's act? Thanks.
