Fiber Optic Weaving

Recently I helped fund an outdoor mural project through Kickstarter, and so I get updates about other Kickstarter projects. Here's a new one that certainly looks fascinating. It's woven panels made of fiber optic threads which will be linked to the internet and change warp and weft patterns based on Twitter feeds and airplane flight times.

Batala Rehearsal

DC100814-X4669CS--Batala, originally uploaded by Bill in DC.

When you play repique, you don't get a lot of photographic time. There were 58 shots of rehearsal last week and I could only one photo of me (in gray on the right). Every week, photographers and tourists take our pictures and I keep up a steady hunt for online images. Here's a recent video of a rehearsal.
