Eric Mead is featured in an Aspen Times story where he offers his opinions about magic. Discussing why he doesn't do illusions he said, "That makes me feel like a furniture-mover… Because you know that it's not me, it's the prop that does it. When you have that big box, it's hard to make it look like you're doing anything at all." Explaining what makes strong magic he said, "I'm always aware of what I'm communicating, that idea that magic is less about ideas and more about emotions. When you can express that sense of mystery, that's it. You have to communicate that feeling wonder and mystery is a positive emotion, a valuable experience. Because a lot of people feel frustration when they encounter magic." The article also gives a good biography of Mead and his latest pursuits.
