Spoon Bending

Wayne Houchin: Spoons

EFFECT:

  • 4 volunteers join me onstage.
  • Each holds a paper back into which I drop a few examined spoons and forks.
  • The audience members feel the bags heat up.
  • When the bags are opened, the spoons and forks are bent and warped.
  • As a kicker, one of the forks impossibly wraps itself around my ring.

The staging and use of volunteers allows this to work on large stages without a camera.

Again, I'm away from home for the next few weeks and don't have access to quality video - but here are a few photos.
