Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project uses crocheting techniques that employ hyperbolic geometry to create complex, natural-looking forms, drawing connections between the crocheted reefs and living corals, such as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. Over 800 participants from the Metropolitan D.C. area, around the country and the world created over 4000 pieces of coral for the endeavor and also helped construct the Reef.
