A recent workshop by  mathematician Darryl Yong taught us how to make annulus models of hyperbolic space. The class produced spectacular results, curving crenelated forms that swooped in vivid stripes of orange, hot pink and black. Participants discovered several intriguing ways to connects the annuli making for some strangely conformed topological surfaces including hyperbolic mobius strips.
