Nature melds living surfaces from the geometry of curvature. Corals, leaves, lichens – even membranes and ears – all living surfaces are shaped through exquisite control over this intrinsic geometry, even as those surfaces flex, twist and grow. Explore fundamental topological principles with mathematician Chaim Goodman-Strauss, and see the surprising beauty and simplicity of the underlying principles that control the geometry of surfaces.
