50 Different Minds by Ligorano/Reese 

About the project:

We have made a new media art form called The Fiber Optic Tapestry. Fiber optic panels are woven on a handloom and attached to a custom made, computer controlled lighting system, which displays information from the internet onto the tapestry’s surface.

The tapestry parses information from Twitter and other data sources to display color, light, and pattern onto woven fiber optic panels using RGB LEDs. The resulting real-time animation is an abstract, data visualization that continually updates as data changes.

You can learn more about it and see it in motion here:
