This is a follow-up to my original post on Margaret Wertheim and her hyperbolic coral project.

There’s also a little more about Margaret Wertheim’s hyperbolic crochet project from the Exploratorium, and a live webcast from the Exploratorium with her, to learn how to crochet coral critters (scroll down to July 2007).

Margaret Wertheim is a science writer, book author, and contributer to the New York Times.  The hyperbolic coral project uses crochet to visualize hyperbolic geometries that weren’t able to be easily crafted before.  She crochets the coral reef to try to bring attention to damage to coral reefs in her home country of Australia.
