Crochet Coral

I think that The Crochet Coral Reef could be one of the coolest things in existence. It follows on from what is probably my favourite scientific paper of all time: Crocheting the hyperbolic plane where Daina TaimiĆ°a proves that one can make a mathematically correct model of a hyperbolic plane through the medium of crochet. The reef combines art, math, recycling, environmental awareness, crafting, self generating forms, emergence all of which are things I like. So therefore it is the coolest thing ever. I've decided to make my bit of hyperbolic crochet to donate to the reef.

What did you make for the reef? I'm planning on going to see it while it's in London. If you come to see it let me know and we can crochet over a pint!

I haven't done it yet but I'm planning to make one and send it to the reef where ever it is. I'm hoping to make a pseudosphere bit of coral.

It's a pity but I'm away while the reef is in London. If I was around I'd be very tempted to hop over to see it.

I like your blog btw!

I will look for your bit of coral--hehe!

I like your blog, too. I am going to see if I can find you on Ravelry.
