The Institute for Figuring

My visit to the Institute for Figuring was really helpful because it gave me ideas for my project.

This piece from The Paper Model room is interesting because it starts from one point and curves out in every direction in order to make a big piece. I like that the concept of “ultra-parallels” (parallel lines come through the point) was used. It is also amazing that this piece is made from pipe cleaners.

The Paper Model room showed the various new forms that can be made from simple shapes like hexagons. This reminds me of the patterning of 3-D objects that I did for the blog.

This piece by Christie Wertheim which is crocheted using discarded audio-tape shows that you can make use of things that you want to throw away. There are so many materials that you can use to crochet.
