Our partners over at Le Laboratoire, the artscience design space in Paris, opened their exhibit last night and hosted part of the party. Created by Buenos Aires architect Ciro Najle, the exhibit centers around a central masterpiece: a large “cloud” made out of crochet. For the past few years, Ciro has worked with scientists and engineers towards a system to turn cloud water into drinkable water. Turns out the surface of a cloud is a fractal that’s difficult to represent mathematically but that crochet is particularly appropriate to represent those same kinds of fractals.
