Crocheting Hyperbolic Space

Crochet Hyperbolic
Dr. Daina Taimina, a Cornell University mathematician, creates intricate crochet pieces in order to better illustrate the physical model of hyperbolic space. “The beauty of Taimina’s method is that many of the intrinsic properties of hyperbolic space now become visible to the eye and can be directly experienced by playing with the models.” Dr. Taimina’s crochet models are on display at the Smithsonian’s collection of American Mathematical Models. The Institute for Figuring has collected a great deal of information about her work in online and real-world exhibitions. Thanks Jeff! Link
