So how does this work then - apart from magic of course?

I don't think its mathematical but physical - you see the
tray out of sight a lot and a few well placed camera cuts.

How he's actually doing it I dunno - but its too late and
I'm too tired to figure it out. Maybe tomorrow...

Seen it done with paper shapes too. It relies on the slanting cuts on the bricks. If you look at the first 'reshuffle, 6 rows away from the camera and come in from the right you can see that the first 3 bricks in row 6 are now visibly 'larger' than standard. From brick 4 on it is row 5 that is 'larger', and then look at the left-hand brick in the 4th row. There is a visible discontinuity in the gap between row 5 and 6 after brick 3. Add up the total bits of 'larger' and they will come to around 1 whole brick.

She has hairy arms, no breasts and trying tricks of intelligence.

Burn her.
