I am constantly searching for magic that fools everyone, magicians and laymen. But, the challenge is finding the material to fool both groups of people without sacrificing artistic integrity.
In other words, I want my magic to be universally awesome for anyone watching it, but also at a high level. I won't be doing any sponge balls or ambitious card routines...
I'm sure there are those who can make them shine with the artistic light of Fred Kaps, but I'm not that person. So, I try to find material that is a bit more obscure, or lesser seen/performed, and try to make it great, try to make it beautiful and try to make it look magical.
But, it starts with choosing the right material. if the material you do is meant for layman only, and you say things like "it fools laymen" then you are probably only fooling yourself. Magicians can recognize familiar techniques from time to time but assuming that magicians have some superlative ability to recognize something and assuming that laymen wouldn't see it because they aren't magicians is ridiculous!
Do magic as well as you can. Perform tricks to fool laymen and magicians. Choose material worth performing. Elevate your work by starting with superior material!
