Jason Latimer will be joining the 2013 Speaker Lineup. Jason Latimer was born with a wrench in hand and a lot of questions. By nine years old, Latimer began chasing down what he thought magic could look like with the simple question of, “What is possible?”
“I went into science to understand that; first mathematics, then physics, chemistry, and then applied sciences …engineering, design, psychology, even economics …anything to understand the world better. And now, I am absolutely confident in saying ‘I have no idea what’s going on’ …All I’ve found is that the right question…Changes everything.” – Jason Latimer
That one question of “What is possible?” has led to his incredible live effects of shaping water into solid forms and popping them, bending laser beams with his bare hands, animating art on his own skin or teleporting people across time and space and many other amazing creations. By applying his background with his passion of illusion design Latimer has received three World Champion of Magic titles and an astonishing seventeen consecutive championship wins and awards for his performance in the art of magic. His personality and high-energy performances recently won the hearts and minds of the UK audience of television series “The Magicians” (BBC1) voting him the winner and series champion. Competing each week in the United Kingdom against two established British acts was a huge challenge but it allowed Latimer to showcase his imagination and the public’s response was overwhelming.
Today, Latimer has stolen the spotlight on multiple occasions as “one of magic’s most gifted creators” (Genii Magazine). His love to wonder and passion to build the impossible has led to magic’s highest honor as he was named the “Grand Prix ‘Best Overall’ World Champion of Magic.” By combining technology with performance, pure sleight of hand skill and applied sciences Latimer has not only ushered in a new genre of magic for the twenty first century but has inspired millions people to wonder.
