The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef
Last week, one of our museum visitors tipped me off about this Australian born crochet project with a social conscience which is taking the world by storm. It’s called the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef and has been described as “a woolly celebration of the intersection of higher geometry and feminine handicraft, and a testimony to the disappearing wonders of the marine world”.
A project which “resides at the intersection of mathematics, marine biology, handicraft and community art practice, and also responds to the environmental crisis of global warming and the escalating problem of oceanic plastic trash” – phew! For more details visit http://www.crochetcoralreef.org.
