i remember seeing this in wired a bit ago, but a friend (who’s working at yohji yamamoto in nyc, w00t!) just passed along an article about the same cornell crocheting professor published in the nytimes today. (come on new york, that news is soooo last month.) :) daina taimina is a heroine for crafty mathematicians everywhere!
anyway, yet again with this project [crocheting hyperbolic spaces and other such mathematical forms] i became overcome with wonder and curiosity, so thus a search for related online dirt commenced…
nytimes article on daina taimina’s crocheted hyperbolic spaces
home of mathematical knitting has all the links and photos and names. paparazzi shot of nicky epstein with daina! a couple treats include:
