2°C

Coral bleaching is a temperature-dependent stress response. At a difference of 2°C, the algae’s ability to photosynthesize and feed its coral host is impaired. Stressed corals eject their algae (zooxanthellae) and subsequently starve leaving dead transparent tissue behind. A multitude of other organisms’ living symbiotically with the corals are also endangered.

This work

i. celebrates the diversity of lines by counting stiches, joining yarns and colours, increasing, decreasing

ii. explores the cryptic mathematics of the natural world via the hyperbolic geometry of corals

iii. proposes that these ignored technologies are the tools we need to construct a symbiotic Anthropocene
