String art is the art of arranging strings to form geometrical patterns. One fun way to do string art is with a piece of wood, nails and thread. Schauleh had a lot of yellow spare thread so we decided to spent last Sunday’s rainy afternoon doing some string art.
On our way to the hardware store, we were discussing what could be the inspiration for our little art project and we quickly agreed that it would be fun to do our Facebook network in string art, or at least part of it.
The result is below. Mine represents my closest friends in San Francisco and my immediate family in France, hers represents her family in Northern California. Each nail represents a person and each string represents a connection between two persons. The length of the string is proportional to the geographical distance between the two connected persons.
