Episode 120: String Art Is All Mathy

This episode almost didn’t happen! The file went missing… for days! Thankfully Katie decided to have on last look for it before giving up and found it in the show archives from 2014. Loni’s daughter Collin is sitting in today, although she stays pretty quiet. The Gals talk about string art. It has mathy origins but that math sure makes some sexy art.

Since this episode is technically last week’s and it needs to go up a.s.a.p. we are going to keep things short and sweet in the name of brevity.

Katie talked about two great articles covering the artists who made string art so popular; here are the links for those.

And just because they are cool as shit, here is a picture of some surface models displaying the mathematical concepts that birthed string art as we know it.
