The Institute For Figuring (IFF) hopes to raise $27,000 on Kickstarter for Crochet Coral Reef: The Book. It will feature essays from an art critic, a science historian, and IFF founders Margaret and Christine Wertheim.
The finished book will also honor the work of the 7000+ contributors who took part in crocheting for environmental advocacy. For more information about these coral reef crochet creations, check out this TED Talk. We’ve embedded a video about the book project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:
“The Crochet Coral Reef project was conceived as a direct response to climate change. It has mobilized people all over the planet to respond to this crisis in a powerful, constructive and collaborative way. The book will spread the word about climate change in a format that is highly accessible, scientifically astute, and visually stunning.”
