MIT Professor Dan Nocera believes he can solve the world’s energy problems with an Olympic-sized pool of water. Nocera and his research team have identified a simple technique for powering the Earth inexpensively – by using the sun to split water and store energy - making the large-scale deployment of personalized solar energy possible.

'automatic handwriting part one' is a series of 3D animations based upon my Hyperstills series of algorithmic, 3D images. The four works that make up automatic handwriting part one lead the viewer on a mesmerizing, meditative journey through the portals of conscious existence into an abstract world. Exotic forms stretch across the matrix of time and space. Fire morphs into wind, into turbulent smoke-infused water, and hints at the secret source of all Elements.
I have freely shared the source footage from AHP1 with many artists, VJs and other performers for re-mix and use in multimedia visual events. The original, long-form animations were created for the theatrical piece 'The Tibetan Book of the Dead' an Asia Society Production with original music by Philip Glass. The piece debuted in NYC in 2006 and was re-imagined by Katsura Kan in 2009 with a performance in Boulder, Colorado.
John Vega's digital art is not only visually stimulating; it's full of thought-provoking fantasy worlds and nerve-scintillating imagery. Vega's turbocharged digital art work inspires and is a meditative investigation of the possibilities inherent in the new media environment.

Here we see Englsih Freemen standing in court as Lay Advisors to another Freemen.
This is for a Council Tax Liability Order hearing in Cwmbran Magistrates Court in South Wales, There were 14 Freemen in attendance.
The court was never convened as the Freemen never handed juridiction to magistrates or the clerk by standing up when ordered to do so and the magistrates never sat down.
The magistrates twice abandoned the court (the ship) and it was the Freemen who called the Police and at one point the Lay advisor can clearly be heard calling attending Police Constables to arrest the magistrates for impersonating judges.
There were many criminal acts committed this day by the company personnel (Magistrates, solictors, security and the clerk) and Police complaints are under way pending prosecutions for Fraud among other things.
But for the real shocker of how these people think they are above the law ...
I was playing around with the vocals for this tune a few months ago and they sounded pretty good so I decided on doing a full cover of the song. I did the vocals, backing guitar, and bass guitar to a midi drum track but wanted real drums to replace them.
I found a YouTube Member named Byrds1967 who agreed to do the guitar solo and appear in the video.
I found a drummer, Tom Menikos, from http://www.tmixstudio.com in Texas who agreed to record his drum tracks and send them to me for mixing. He didn't have a camcorder so isn't in the video.
That's Mike Clark playing the drums in the video.
The audio was recorded, mixed, and mastered using "Reaper" an excellent multi-track recording application.
The video was produced using Vegas Video.
Thanks to Electick65 for assisting with video production.
