"THE TURK It was a project that was in the back of my mind many years ago. I consulted my late friend Christian Fechner who advised me to use moving gears inside the cabinet. Then I asked the legendary John Gaughan, creator and restorer of large scale magical automata. Finally Abdul Alafrez, magician, actor and theatre special effects consultant came with the solution I needed. With my talented co-worker Cathy Rivers we then solved the different problems one by one. The effect is the following: The crank is turned, the left door opens showing an empty cabinet all the way inside except for moving gears. The
left door closes, the right one opens and a little man is seeing
activating a lever supposed to lift the automaton's left hand. It is my favorite piece ,until the next one may be!!!"
