An absolutely excellent TED talk from Margaret Wertheim: The beautiful math that links coral, crochet and hyperbolic geometry.
This talk reminded me a lot of the intersection between mathematics, beauty and life that is explored in McBurney/Complicite’s play A Disappearing Number. From the production’s website:
Threaded through this pattern of stories and ideas are questions. About mathematics and beauty; imagination and the nature of infinity; about what is continuous and what permanent; how we are attached to the past and how we affect the future; how we create and how we love.
What a delightfully philospohical space to sit and think in! Enjoy.
