Re: The Blood Scarf and Pencil-made Vagina Dentata

That beautiful rippled pencil sculpture reminds me of this project I saw in Craft magazine a few days ago.


Crafty math nerds at the “Institute for Figuring” are crocheting coral reefs, sea urchins and anenomes using hyperbolic prinicples.

Why is it everyone hates math until they see someone knit a scarf that's a piece of hyperbolic space and then starting "owwwing" and "awwwing"? It's disturbing that the only thing most people get from math is that you can make pretty designs.
