Looking forward to your presentation at the ECSS next year. I'm sure it will be the highlight of the weekend.

Be sure to let the folks at ECSS know that, Intrepid! I'm not sure if the booking is a done deal yet.

And thanks Brian, Kono, and balzar. Yeah, I remember seeing Doug Henning perform the Flexible Glass effect in his live show, and it left a strong impression. Bending the mirror looked so magical.

Just stumbled on this thread. Love the story.

In my country (especially in my area), when someone dies, the family of the deceased one will cover/remove every mirrors in the house.

S.H.
May you live in interesting times.

Thank you, Hudson. When putting together the script, I ended up with a mountain of research material about the folklore of mirrors, so the difficult part was choosing what stuff to cut and what to leave in.


David,
Is there any chance that your research on the 'Folklore of Mirrors' might be made available to the rest of us. I would really like to purchase a copy.

Thank You

K0n0, sorry to say I never formally wrote up all of my research. Much of it was in the form of scribbles on index cards. If you're interested in this subject, I recommend reading The Mirror: A History by Sabine Melchoir-Bonnet.
