Barcode Art by Scott Blake
Worlds of Wayne

"New episode up with Omaha artist Scott Blake. This is a must listen.
From barcode art and Art O Mats to infiltrating the Walmarts and
Target with rogue public art statements (not to mention his Big O
sculpture accents), Scott has international acclaim as an innovative
and thought provoking artist. His return to the show catches us all up
on what he is working on now.” http://traffic.libsyn.com/worldsofwayne/Scott_Blake.mp3

I will #NeverForget the #911Anniversary partially because the news repeatedly showed the plane crashing into south tower on average every seven minutes.

When I’m not making Barcode Art or protesting Walmart, I’m trying to get two innocent men out of prison. David Rice and Edward Poindexter were wrongfully convicted of killing an Omaha police officer in 1970. Amnesty International said, “They were sentenced for a crime they didn’t commit because of their radical political beliefs.” Rice and Poindexter are currently serving their 44th year behind bars at the Nebraska State Penitentiary in Lincoln, NE. The growing movement of people trying free them includes the actor Danny Glover, author Angela Davis, and Former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark. I just finished editing a short video about Rae Ann Schmitz who was with David Rice the night of the bombing and she testified as an alibi witness for the defense. I am really pleased with how the video came out. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehAVOFCNCCo
