Stringing threads around pins and arranging them in such a manner that they form noticeable geometric patterns or shapes has been present for decades.By implementing digital tools for interpreting geometric shapes as well as grayscale images through thin threads, it became possible to fairly quickly render a final depiction of a string art piece.
Changing the parameters influences the shape of the piece (triangular, square, hexagonal), the number of threads, the number of pins and the contrast between the background and the threads while at the same time allowing for digital fabrication. In this research, the emphasis is placed on fabricating large scale string art pieces, where several smaller pieces are fabricated by using a robotic knitting tool and path and assembled into a larger end piece.
