During my last visit to Cape Town, I ended up at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront -- a destination I make sure to hit up every time I visit my parents. Not only do I have a habit of buying my mom some random piece of Carol Boyes implement, I also make sure to hit the craft markets.
This past February, I was quite intrigued to see a crocheted coral installation. The installation is a part of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project, which is spearheaded by the Institute For Figuring.
Essentially, crochet was used to illustrate hyperbolic geometry and it turns out that the shapes correspond with the natural formation of coral. Pretty neat stuff.
