Guys. This is embarrassing.

Embarrassing for those trying to argue that it is real. Embarrassing for those that believe it. But, perhaps most embarrassing of all for those who think they can pull the wool over their colleagues eyes.

I agree. It was almost painful to watch. I think videos like this hurt more then they do any good for a creator such as Art.

I think some people need to book an elemental manipulation weekend and see for themselves just how real this is Smile

Loving the controversy though!

Kind regards

I thoroughly enjoyed watching the performance.

And I have thoroughly enjoyed the books and ebooks I have by Art. In fact I performed an effect from one of them today - a lovely imaginary trip described in Planes Mistaken for Stars.

And I think what the debate on this thread shows is what a brilliant and creative chap Art is.

He knows how to perform, how to intrigue and entertain. And we should be thankful for the gems he has shared with the community and I also respect and understand that he wants to keep some of his creations to himself.

He is a name to watch.

Over the past couple of months and weeks I've got to know Art fairly well, and we have talked to length about various concepts and ideas in mentalism (both mine and his).

Although I have never spoken to him in person (we seem to be playing Skype tag with one another) I can say with fair conviction that what you saw in the FCM Q&A was legitimate.

I am an FCM admin and Ben would have had no idea of the questions beforehand or what Art was going to perform. For him to fake something like this would be nearly impossible.

Art is a wonderful bloke and has helped me with many aspects of my performance and my creation, and I highly doubt that he would make an effort to fake something as incredible and as beautiful as the performance.

Not at all, this is something I perform on the last day of my Elemental Manipulation weekends. It's not my fault that others are unable to fathom how I accomplish it.

I performed this for Ben as part of the Q&A for The Hold Out. I was told it was meant to be a private video however the 8 min clip posted above has now been posted everywhere due to people freaking out over it. I only performed it for Ben because I believed it was a private video for members only and wanted something suitable to demonstrate the power of elemental manipulation and to show what is possible.

If anyone wants to believe it has to be set up and Ben was in on it then by all means, but remember that at one point we all must have thought that reading minds, predicting the future, revealing PIN codes, and bending metal objects was impossible.

I have been studying and performing Elemental Manipulation for many years now, it is something very unique and the effects created are nothing short of miracles. I will be making a DVD demonstrating and teaching some of these effects later on in the year hopefully as I would like to see more people doing this unique branch of magic.

People who know me know that I will go to ridiculous lengths to make any effect possible. The clip above is just one of the huge feats I perform using a very closely kept secret of mine.

If anyone would like to learn more about this kind of work there are a scattering of books on the subject and I also hold Elemental Manipulation training sessions where I teach you pretty much everything I know on the subject. In fact I am doing one in August at Ilkley Moor.

As I have mentioned before, if you doubt me, sign up for one of my Elemental Manipulation weekends, there you will see so much more than Cloud Sculpting!

Remember that NOTHING is impossible! If you start thinking like that then a whole new world will open up to you!

Kind regards
Art

After the Q&A for The Hold Output, they decided to put this video out on youtube without your permision? That is actually quite serious violations. You should take actions.

You said you will not give any hints on how this was done, and you will take this effect to the grave. But now you are saying you are working on a DVD on the subject. You are also having an seminar were you will teach everything you know about Elemental Manipulation, and the participants will teach much more then Cloud Sculpting. I hope you don`t mean "take it to the grave" literally...

I don`t understand what you mean Amira? That you see some clouds on the sky, and that proves that this is real, or that you also see the actual name in the clouds? I just see some white sky, when he wawes the camera. If you also somehow see the name, that means the hole area should be able to see it too, and then Art would be a real wizard.

They asked if they could post an 8 min clip on the FCM page which I accepted as that is also a private group, the fact that it has gone viral so to speak is not what I intended but at the same time I am not too bothered about it. The main chunk of the Q&A regarding the methods I taught and the rules of performing Elemental Manipulation are still kept private on the original video and that's what is important.

The DVD will not include the Cloud Sculpting and neither does the Elemental Manipulation Training Sessions either - The DVD will cover about 6 - 8 different effects and the Sessions teach "pretty much everything" I know on the subject, I have to hold back a few nuggets of gold! haha.

I have 3 effects that I will never explain and will take to my grave, this is just one of them.

(To answer your question to Pablo, everyone living near Ben would have seen the name in the clouds that day too)

Kind regards

Guys I think pits time I weighed in here. Art and I spoke before hand but it was about my ne e-pipe I bought and what flavors I should buy. The interview goes on as normal and I figured I could catch the ****** out. If he anticipated this by whatever means then kudos or if its something he can set up or whatever I don't care. All I know is I experienced a moment and the first one I have experienced for many years, where something wasn't just a puzzle that I could work out. I thought of a name that I did not tell him about, and then I saw that name in the clouds!! I don't care who or how or why, all I know is it was amazing!!!

I really don't understand why people think this is a put up job. The chaps reaction seems pretty realistic to me. The piece feels like the sort of thing Berglas would have pulled off in his prime. Art is clearly prepared to go the extra mile to provide true astonishment. Not sure if the clouds element pulls us away from mentalism into the magic field, though.

While the stooge element I won't comment on, I see a feasible, "low-cost" (in comparison to hiring a plane) on days with very speific weather conditions and a 3 person crew method for this. Would be too much work for me and a significant degree of background work for the situation. Judging by PMFS Art would probably go that extra extra mile.

Either way I was very engaged by this video.

I don`t even want to start on that one.

The strange thing is that you can show almost anything here at penny, and many will belive it, support it, and some try to make money on it. It should be the exact opposite. I see all people here at penny as fellow colleagues, and deliberately try to fool a colleague for selling stuff, in this case Elemental Manipulation, on a false premise comes under the expression "how low can you go", in my eyes.

Well, I rest my case. Must use my energi on something else Smile

"How low can you go" indeed.

If the claimed effect were real then the creator could and should demonstrate it for those who have credibility here on the Café.

Think about it, guys. Any two blokes with web cams and Skype can do exactly what's shown on the video, which isn't much. Even the acting is bad.

To make a tall claim then shy away from proving it is...a cop out.

I've never heard of Art before this thread, but have made a mental note never to purchase anything from him.

Some people seem to think any form of attention is good for business, even if it's controversial. That may be true in some cases. But it stops being true if people think you are trying to pull the wool over their eyes and as a result no longer trust you.
