Magician, inventor and poet Jerry Andrus (1918-2007) had an insatiable appetite for uncovering the mysteries of life on the boundary between reason and illusion. Seen here wandering through his Albany, Oregon, "Castle of Chaos," he demonstrates his incredible inventions (such as the Tri-Zonal Space Warper),and waxes philosophy on the subjects of reason and perception, God and what he calls "the curse of contentment." A THING OF WONDER (a title taken from one of his poems) reflects not only the creative genius of Jerry Andrus, but also his highly principled lifestyle and profound involvement with the problems of human existence. It is a tribute to a man devoted equally to the science and magic of wonder.
