I recently sent a variety of crochet contributions to Knitteapolis for the Knit the Oval yarnbombing project. They included crochet WIPs and hyperbolic crochet.
Daina Taimina is known for her discovery of hyperbolic crochet, a popular craft art form among mathematicians. Today I want to share the work of University of Wisconsin, Madison PhD lecturer Gabriele Meyer who also create hyperbolic crochet art.
Is Margaret Wertheim going to write a book about The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project? Possibly. I sure hope so!
The IFF recently opened a permanent exhibition space in Los Angeles for math and science related art exhibits that will include exhibits of portions of the hyperbolic crochet reef project.
I want to go outside of the box for this week’s profile of an artist who works with crochet. Margaret and Christine Wertheim are the minds behind the Institute for Figuring’s Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project, an eco-friendly math-smart crochet project that has inspired many crafters around the world.
