Knot


  • There is a special knot in climbing which is very strong and easy to unknot. This knot is using for hanging from the mountain and can save climbers lives.

  • repeating the climbing knot over and over creates a network of knots which is a very strong net.

Thread based visualization


  • The idea that I am developing is to show that asylum in not only from the countries with bad situation or countries that are facing war. In this thread combination I tried to show the amount of refugees from the 20 first successful countries.

  • Guide:
  1. Red rows show the origin of refugees
  1. Yellow color shows the destination of refugees
  1. each thread shows a number that represents the number of refugees
    1. Less than 10: 1 thread
    2. 10 to 20: 2 thread
    3. 20 to 40: 3 thread
    4. 40 to 60: 4 thread

Wheels and Pulleys


  • The system simply works by pulling the thread. The wheels which in fact act as gears make the swabs move in opposite direction.
