The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef

I just re-watched this video on TED the other day and although it isn't new, I think that if you haven't seen it or heard about the Hyperbolic Coral Reef it will blow your mind.

Margaret Wertheim talks about how she led a project with her sister, Christine to re-create the creatures of the coral reefs using a crochet technique invented by a mathematician. In this ongoing project, which started in 2007, they celebrate the amazingness of the reef, and dive into the hyperbolic geometry underlying coral creation.

Did any of you take part when it was in London two years ago?

Happy Crocheting!
