'Fueled by the ways of the magician, the ninja, the artist, and the private investigator, Tactical Magic is a fusion force derived from seemingly disparate “art” paradigms and invoked for the purpose of activating the social imaginary with notions of responsible citizenship through creative action. Such transformative inversions of power relationships highlight not only the creative appropriation of seemingly innocuous elements but a greater inclination toward the elaborate integration of all things related; a magical perspective that, far from being limited to the child's experience, sees nonapparent links and connections amidst an illusion of order, control, and restriction. In this way “magical thinking” drops its cloak of transcendental escapism and materializes as a social, political, and cultural counterperception - an alternative worldview that summons the creative and prophetic power of the multitude.' http://www.tacticalmagic.org/
