Artwork description:

This 76x76cm string portrait on a wooden board depicts Johann Sebastian Bach. An endless string, like the thread of Ariadne, snatches the image of the composer and one of the greatest people in history from the depths of time, and though the labyrinths of consciousness leads an observer to the eternal source of his divine music.

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 280 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...

String, Nails
