Doodlebug joins us on a tour of topological surfaces, with drawings and paper and scissor exercises. Another project to complete! Videos of the physical exercises will appear sometime — they do not seem to be


Welcome to hyperbolic geometry, with this beautiful steel rendition of the 5444 tiling: at each corner three squares and one pentagon meet, forcing the surface to bend and coil up with negative curvature. The straight
