Knitting, Math and the Great Barrier Reef

In a sixteen minute video, Margaret Wertheim, from “The Institute For Figuring … an organization dedicated to the poetic and aesthetic dimensions of science, mathematics and engineering”, gives a TED talk on the role of math in knitting and crochet, in a exhibition that brings attention to the Great Barrier Reef and the problems it is having because of global warming. Whether you are interested in the interplay or science and art or not, she exhibits some fantastic crochet and knitting work that is really worth a look.
