Kieron Kirkland is magician, technologist and social innovation geek. A member of the Magic Circle, he has performed everywhere from Shakespeare’s Globe to the Arctic Circle. As Magician-in-Residence at the Pervasive Media Studio he created new ways that magic and technology could be intertwined and ran the world’s first magic hack http://www.watershed.co.uk/ished/projects/kieronkirkland/ which was featured on the BBC, The Independent and Slate Magazine. And yes, it was as much fun as it sounds. He’s also a retired street clown, but generally keeps quiet about that.
