On October 30, 2010, at PS1 (a division of the Museum of Modern Art), they hosted a 2 day event called Move! The event paired artists with fashion designers and it was really cool. Magician David Blaine was on hand as he was part of an installation that featured the short film “Dressed for Dinner” (directed by Adam Kimmel). In the video, David Blaine is underwater in a school of sharks while smoking a cigar! He keeps the cigar lit, blows smoke underwater and somehow does not get eaten by the sharks! Don’t ask me how he did that, but it was not photoshopped!
As David Blaine toured the other floors of the exhibit, I met him and he was super cool. I didn’t disappear and we both turned out in the photo, so I have proven that our encounter was not an illusion. Thanks again David! I am in awe of the tricks you perform.
