String art is
a graphic art characterized by an arrangement of colored straight line segments between points to form abstract geometric patterns.
Thread, wire, or string is wound around a grid of nails hammered into a velvet-covered wooden board.
Though straight lines are formed by the string, the slightly different angles and metric positions at
which strings intersect gives the appearance of Bézier curves (as in the mathematical concept of envelope of a family of straight lines).
curve are obtained from strings based on two
String art has its origins in the 'curve stitch' activities invented by Mary Everest Boole
(1832 - 1916) to make mathematical ideas more accessible to children.
