50 Different Minds featured in Wall Street Journal

Comment

Hi all,

We haven't forgotten you and your support for the tapestry. We're now beginning to make a new one which maps personal data onto the fiber optic weave.

Today The Wall Street Journal featured 50 Different Minds owned by Robert Bielecki.

Here's the link to the article: http://tinyurl.com/ch95hr4

Thanks for all your support.

Update #12

50 Different Minds 2011 update

Comment

In the past year, we've accomplished a lot with 50 Different Minds. It was selected as one of the Top Ten Artworks on Kickstarter by Flavorwire.

We showed it at SF ArtMRKT and ArtMiami with Catherine Clark Gallery from San Francisco.

In the ArtMRKT, Rick and Megan Prelinger came by with Lee Warren to see the piece.

In Miami, Catherine showcased the tapestry with other artists whose works make use of quotation or refer to earlier artists and other art movements .

Right now, we're busy finishing #1 from the edition for a collector of new media. We're very excited to be working on this.

Nora testing luminosity of the weave.

We are working with Ed Bear and Todd Holoubek.

Ed and I are going over the programming of the firmware on the chips.

At the end of January, we'll be showing 50 Different Minds at the Portland Museum of Art as part of Oregon College of Art and Crafts Connection Speaker series. If you're in the area, please, drop by to our presentation - we'll be talking about the inspirations that led us to make the tapestry.

Through most of 2012, we'll be working on new, woven fiber optic pieces that use an individual's personal metrics and data as sources for weaving a portrait of them.
