Crocheting adventures with hyperbolic planes in TEDxRiga
I am sorry for a break in my blog - in April I had to rush to Riga due to family emergency. While dealing with it I received an invitation to participate in first TEDxRiga which was yesterday, June 14 in Latvian National Opera house New Hall. It was very exciting day and I learned a lot from other speakers. My talk was celebrating 15 years since I crocheted the very first hyperbolic plane. Its internet version will be available in about 3 weeks, I will post a link here. But for now I am finishing my things here in Riga and looking forward to get back to US on June 29th and get back to blogging...
Mixing together my math education + experience in knitting and crochet + love of art, I came up with my book Crocheting Adventures with the Hyperbolic Planes and this blog. If you would like me to give a talk or workshop about art and math (not only about this connection in my own work), on history of mathematics, some fun with math,or something else - please contact me directly. I would be happy to participate with my work in your event - let me know!To see my art please visit http://dainataimina.blogspot.com/
