Students at SLCC had their minds warped, twisted and completely bent backwards on Friday evening. No surprise around midterms, but this was from something else. Christopher Carter, mind reader, illusionist and freakout artist visited the school and put on a live show in the Student Center at the Taylorsville Redwood campus.
Carter’s show began with the standard “pick a card” trick, in which he accurately predicted the cards of four people. The only difference in his trick was that none of the participants actually touched a card. All they did was picture the cards and he guessed exactly what they were.
Next Carter was able to tell what audience members had written on 3X5 cards simply by touching them, while his eyes had silver dollars duct taped to them. Watching the audience members freak out as he accurately predicted locker combinations, student numbers, names and random questions was just as entertaining as the illusions themselves.
Then things got weird.
Without giving away the rest of the show, the rest of Carter’s illusions truly made one question whether it was a trick or some kind of super power. The audience progressively became more amazed as laws of physics were broken, minds were read, and incredible tricks were made.
