Crafty Cacti

Thanks to Lara for sending us these photos of amazing crocheted cacti! What will really sprain your brain about these forms is that they are actually visual representations of hyperbolic space. Huh? Read more at the Institute for Figuring website.

They also reminded me of this photo I saw on craftster awhile back- you know how much I love a handcrafted pincushion!

Well I am a loss for words. Those are amazing....
But hyperbolic space????? HUH is right...
I'm much too tired to figure that out.
Perhaps another day.
