'The 50 Different Minds' is an innovative project that fuses interactivity with traditional arts, the digital world and social media into a colorful light show. The canvas is a hand-woven fiber optic tapestry that is connected to RGB LEDs to create the colorful lights.

The electronics are hooked up to Twitter feeds as well as flight schedules from the nine busiest airports around the world. While the hand-woven fiber optic tapestry may look incredible, the amazing thing is how well modern technology and technology from the past, like a loom, are combined into a seamless presentation.
