An ever-evolving nature-culture hybrid, the Crochet Coral Reef resides at the nexus of art, science, mathematics, environmentalism, and community practice.
Art + Science
Created in response to climate change and oceanic plastic trash, the Crochet Reef also invokes hyperbolic geometry and Darwinian evolution.
The Crochet Coral Reef has been exhibited nationally and internationally, including at the Hayward Gallery (London) and the Smithsonian (Washington DC).
The Crochet Coral Reef sends out spawn: more than 40 community-based Satellite Reefs have been made around the world.
“The sculptures are like force-fields drawing you into their orbit, catalysts for a network of social relations that mimic a reef’s … Gorgeous, absurd and socially productive, these are rare works of art.”— Christopher Knight, Los Angeles Times
Margaret Wertheim spoke on the TED main-stage about the Crochet Coral Reef.
