A juggling rings illusion by Ouka

A photo doesn't do it justice - the rings 
have to be moving for the illusion to work. 

Ouka - Ringarts


Ouka, a 26-year old Japanese performer, says: "This is not magic. There is no trick." I would disagree. As my son said when he watched this: "That is so frickin' weird."

When you watch this, you can switch in and out of "knowingness" (is that a word?) - you know what's going on with the rings, and then the illusion part kicks in, so it looks like something else is happening. You can observe two things at once - you sense one thing while knowing another.

  1. Haha, funny 'coz I was chatting with my mate asking where to find some good o'le hand-made silver rings and he gave me a link to this page and those are just literal! I'd agree though that there is no magic or tricks in there, just one fine Japanese who got bored one day. You know them Japs when they get bored, they create something extraordinarily amazing! :)
