Smoke and Mirrors: The Psychology of MagicMind games and masters of deception, the secret world of magicians is revealed at Smoke and Mirrors, a free exhibition at the Wellcome Collection which focuses on the relationship between magic and psychology. Artefacts from Derren Brown, Tommy Cooper, Paul Daniels, Debbie McGee and Harry Houdini illustrate the world of magic as the exhibition seeks out the truth about deception. Discover how bias and suggestion affect our senses and decisions, explore spirit photography and psychology experiments to understand how magic works on - and in - your mind.
