This is a false floor and ceiling system for large hotel ballrooms that uses millions of 15 inch fiber optic cables that perfectly mimic a vast field of wheat.
In the floor, the cables are pointed up. As people walk or dance or stagger across the transparent floor surface, the electrostatic charge
moves the cables around beneath the floor surface, creating an endless array of patterns as the cables react to the movement.
In the ceiling panels, the fiber optic cables hang down, and respond to the many small and unobtrusive fans blowing across their surface.
Since some people might experience vertigo, the floor surface is vomit proof and easily cleaned. Heat from the cable lighting is harvested for the hotel bakery.
