A string figure is a design formed by manipulating string on, around, and using one's fingers or sometimes between the fingers of multiple people. String figures may also involve the use of the mouth, wrist, and feet. . up to: Gryski, Camilla ( ). Cat's Cradle, Owl's Eyes: A Book of String Games, p ISBN 3.

Repetitive hand motions have been physically linked to higher level reasoning and memory, and since knotted strings produce a physical artifact, the association of cognitive deep structure with string manipulation seems logical. Our proposed study will assume such a linkage without absolute proof.

We will then explore what advantages knotting might afford as interface to new artificial spaces, what specific techniques and manipulations might be tied to certain associations, and what the implications for "evolving" new languages may be. Goranson, Toward a Study of String Figures and Knowledge Representation "In terms of expense one of the least expensive toys is that required to make string figures.

Any kind of string can be used but there is an advantage to purchasing certain types. One needs a length of string about six feet long. One can simply tie the ends together but the knot can prove to be a nuisance; therefore, a synthetic material, such as nylon, with a slight roughness is preferable.

One can then heat a soldering gun to melt the ends of the string and the two ends are joined to make a continuous loop. Stories of Grandmother spider spinning net-like webs and studies of alignments, navigational star charts and grids form our understanding of the interrelationship between myth, art, science and mathematics.

Early man looked to nature in developing his knowledge of the world about him. The natural world is the canvas for straight and curved lines. The navigators were well aware of the straight line of the horizon.

The makers of containers were observers of the curved lines of the moon. The human body also reflects the proportions used in measurement. The length of the string we use in making string figures can be measured from fingertip of one outstretched hand to the fingertips of the other and when joined together they form the string loop. In addition to string used as a tool for measurement, knotted cords were used as mnemonic devices and for tallying.
