Crochet Collides With Coral.. Really

Margaret Wertheim and her sister started creating crochet reefs as a response to the overwhelming press of climate change back in 2005. Earlier this year at TED she demonstrated these reefs and gave a beautiful explanation of the special geometry that helps create corals and other underwater denizens as well as crochet arts. Her talk is a gorgeous example of the power of art where it collides with science and leads to deeper understanding and awareness on so many levels.
