    Twisting Rainbow...How'd he do that???

    Pretty cool effect!

    You first must think about how you could get a prism to do this...(please don't spoil the fun by making posts until Monday!!!)

    Not twisted, it's a series of straight lines (probably lasers, or "Light pipes" with matte or some other diffusion mechanism to make them "Bleed" light along their length) in a hyperbolic paraboloid making them look as though they are twisted.


    Very in vogue in the modern art community.

    Edit: Had a chance to read it - just colored threads? This would be much cooler with lasers, EL Wire, or Fiber optics.... (It would also be substantially more expensive to build, so there is that)
