When comparing my current project idea to the string art of the 20th century, it can be seen that the string art of the past is a lot more detailed. The details of the entire ship can be seen and even the waves are created by the type of string used. When looking at string art of the 21st century, it is a lot more minimalist of designs. There are more clear outlines and symmetry. It would be interesting to paint a picture with the caliber of detail used in the 20th century.
