Here’s a great interview and explanation of crocheting hyperbolic space. We are so firmly set into Euclidean geometry, that it may be hard to understand space and geometry in any other terms. David Henderson and Daina Taimina put this somewhat mind bending task in simple terms. Daina’s crocheted hand knit models are taking on the challenge of generating a greater intuitive understanding of hyperbolic spaces. (Images courtesy the Institute For Figuring)
David Henderson and Daina Taimina will be giving a talk at The Kitchen, NYC on Saturday, February 5th, 2005. more info here.
