Maths and crochet related? Oh c'mmon!

Do you think that maths and geometry have absolutley nothing to do with crochet, paper folding or any kind of art? Well, then let me tell you you're wrong! And if you're not convinced, take a look at the Institute For Figuring.

"The Institute For Figuring is an organization dedicated to the poetic and aesthetic dimensions of science, mathematics and the technical arts.
The Institute’s interests are twofold: the manifestation of figures in the world around us and the figurative technologies that humans have developed through the ages. From the physics of snowflakes and the hyperbolic geometry of sea slugs, to the mathematics of paper folding, the tiling patterns of Islamic mosaics and graphical models of the human mind, the Institute takes as its purview a complex ecology of figuring."
