Kieron Kirkland



The secret of every magic trick is to create a unwilling suspension of disbelief. But good magicians will change the way we see the world, and the greatest how we see ourselves.

Kieron Kirkland is magician, technologist and social innovation geek. A member of the Magic Circle, he has performed everywhere from Shakespeare’s Globe to the Arctic Circle. As Magician-in-Residence at the Pervasive Media Studio he created new ways that magic and technology could be intertwined and ran the world’s first magic hack which was featured on the BBC, The Independent and Slate Magazine. And yes, it was as much fun as it sounds. He’s also a retired street clown, but generally keeps quiet about that.
