PI Project by Patrick Gallagher and Chris Klapper
How to create the largest geographic art installation in the world?
We begin this process by hand casting individual sculptures of the numerical sequence of PI.
As the work ships around the world, we will track the expansion of the project’s database with a web based visualized map, pinpointing three elements of each sculpture: the geo-locations, the individual numbers and their specific position along the sequence of this transcendental number. This data will be available in real-time and visualized on an interactive world map, connecting each sculpture and its collector into a unique global community.
This installation is available to everyone in the world.
How big are we talking here?
This project will span decades.
Tracking the project through online sales and promoting it on social media, this will be an infinite series — continuously updated and always adaptive. Each year will bring new sets of numbers and new ways of visualizing the data.
