"A Common Thread" is an interactive tapestry created by NYU Tisch students, faculty and staff as a collaborative project to show both similarities and differences of each individual, and how they come together as a community. 

Attendees created individual tapestry pieces reflecting who they are as individuals, using basic geometric shapes to tie the piece together and reflect their own personal narrative in iconography. 

A book was printed and displayed alongside the finished tapestry featuring the pieces made and their creators.
