Hyperbolic Forest

Festival of the Mind 2016 – University of Sheffield

The installation brings together pieces of knitting and crochet from all over the world. The Hyperbolic Forest is a tactile, atmospheric display that visualises the geometry of hyperbolic surfaces, a mathematical theory that changed the way we think about space.

A surface is hyperbolic when (…) it curves in two different directions around each of its points.
