Hyperbolic Geometry and Crochet

23 Sep

Usually, anything to do with math makes me glaze over. Though I did come to embrace geometry in high school and college. The video below, while very scientific in nature is fascinating. Margaret Wertheim talks about a project she and her twin sister started to model coral reefs with crochet! On a scientific level, there are some hyperbolic geometry concepts that can ONLY be modeled with crochet! She explores the link between Euclidian geometry and traditionally feminine crafts. It’s worth the 15 minute watch!
