String Theory: Or Three Ways to Walk Through a Wall

Here is another apron from the Apron Archives, all about string theory and the intriguing possibility of parallel realities, couched here in the question of whether you do or do not decide to make bologna and cream cheese hors d'oeuvres and what twists your life might take depending on that decision. Note that this and other aprons have been vetted by a physicist who said they pretty much make sense, which is high praise considering I never studied physics. But I am fascinated by string theory.

The pocket contains...string of course. What happens if you take it? What happens if you don't?

This says, "Step One - make bologna hors d'oeuvres" with an accompanying do-don't chart and diagrams of the hors d'oeuvres.

A discussion of possible outcomes and quantum physics.

The bologna hors d'oeuvres recipe for the experiment.

Hem with additional thoughts on string theory. (The apron strings have additional text.)


  1. I have been fascinated by string theory ever since I first heard about it many years ago. No, I don't particularly understand it, but for a textile artist it is an unending source of thoughtfulness!

  2. These are some of the most brilliant pieces of art I've seen in a long time. I love them.

  3. I love string theory! and aprons.
