So awesome: Gabriel Dawe’s string art

I used to do this kind of art when I was a kid, stringing thread or string through holes in paper to make straight lines that produced the shape of a curve. I completely remember – and can picture clearly – one of these projects, with white and red string on blue poster board, that I felt like I could stare at for hours. It really inspired me to see the beauty and elegance in geometry and math, back when I was maybe 8 or 9 years old.

Gabriel Dawe is doing it at a massive, beautiful scale, and I love it.

  1. I went through almost the exact same experience, only my discovery was figuring out the algorithm to program a computer to draw these shapes on the screen, instead of string on a paper. It was about the same age, maybe a little older, but it had the same trance-like effect on me.
