Pi Art - Martin Krzywinski


(Josh Cohen) #1

“Mostly, the works are meant to be beautiful and fun to look at. But beyond that, Krzywinski says the art is meant to awaken emotions about math (hopefully emotions other than dislike and confusion) and start conversations about numbers and randomness.”

Neat! Though pi (and memorization of it) brings to my mind that so-called “autistic savant” guy who memorized the first 20,000 digits or so of it in 2004 or something… he’s kinda hard to forget about.
