I am so excited! One of my art history students submitted her research on craft activism for Scholar’s Day at our college. ( I wrote more about hyperbolic crochet here) Tomorrow she will be presenting her research to the entire academic community. In addition to her required work she also created this amazing hyperbolic crochet reef. It will be cool to see everyone’s reaction to this intersection of maths and art! All of my visual survey students have worked hard on their research projects this semester which makes me SO happy. Maybe this semester I managed to create a few scholars, I feel as if I made a little bit of difference. My heartfelt thanks to the Institute for Figuring for inspiring her!
