String theory's elemental concept of a single unit as the basis for all things is the point of departure for these String theories. As one unit relates to another a construction forms. These constructions are created using the Japanese kumihomo technique originally developed to create ties for the armour worn by the samurai. "Kumi" means coming together and "himo" means threads. The technique is commonly used by young people to create friendship bands extending the connotations of this work to personal relationships and attachments.
