Crochet Hyperbolic Coral Reef


Margaret Wertheim from The Institute for Figuring wrote in to let us know about the Crochet Hyperbolic Coral Reef Project. Featured above is her beautiful work of crochet anemone.

From the site, “The Institute For Figuring is crocheting a coral reef: a woolly celebration of the intersection of higher geometry and feminine handicraft, and a testimony to the disappearing wonders of the marine world.” All crocheters everywhere are invited to contribute to this collective project and will be given recognition online and in future exhibitions.
