Artwork description:

This standalone volume string art of a lazy cat is one of a few works made in collaboration with an amazing Raku-style artist and ceramist Vladimir Mudrenko. It was an idea that took quite some time to mature and led to the a series of works with pronounced standalone volumes.

The original string art technique that created this stunning piece involves wrapping several kilometers of a continuous mono-thread around an evenly spaced circle of 200 aluminum pins. The thread cross, re-cross, and crisscross a circular area above the flat wooden board. The image within the circle is achieved by the painstaking and complex choice of thousands of connections between the pins. After the first 30 connections that make up the image, the number of possible knitting variants exceeds the number of atoms in the Universe! So it’s simply impossible to reproduce this artwork by guesswork or to untangle it with your mind...

Just think, by what kind of magic does the same string that produces only random noise around the image suddenly condense and accurately repeats the complex shape? That's quite amazing... As if by the creator's plan, the string meticulously draws the figure in the air, and from this unifying beginning, the entire piece is interconnected... even the smallest element is an inseparable part of the whole, which brings up deep symbolic meaning to the artwork and makes it a fascinating and insanely intriguing gift.
