Black Velvet Magic

Talking to one of the teachers here at RISD, I was referred to what is called ‘black velvet’ in magic, during which a bright light is projected to the eyes of the audience and obscures their view from the stage. At that moment someone dressed in black can come to the stage without being noticed. I thought that was an interesting analogy of how I could conceal and reveal things in my project as I am dealing alot with concepts of light/shadow what is hidden versus what is exposed.
