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 downloading 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. Sequences of knots held the memories of people while strengthening connections to their ancestors.

Knotted cords were held in prayer. Through the making of string figures we are weaving a tapestry that connects the strands of art and mathematics. We work with both hemispheres of the brain as the symmetry of left and right hands weave patterns in the string.

Art has a right brain function working in the realms of images, form and space.

Mathematics has a left-brain function that deals with number, time and sequence. Integrated they provide a harmony of motion in time and space. Most of the time, people use their fingers to weave string figures, but sometimes, they also use their toes, knees, elbows, and mouth.

Their function varied from place to place. In some locations, string figures provided a much needed artistic outlet - competitions were held to see who could make the most interesting design.They began by selling sidewalk juggling lessons along with a trio of no-bounce bean bags.
