This pi watercolor piece is an important part of my algorithmic painting. Pi is an irrational number that captivated my son as he learned about the endlessness of irrationality. I tried to envision this as he saw it, assigning each number (1-10) a different shade, then painting 3.1415926…and so on. This helped me to recognize the incredible lengths of irrationality, even demonstrating that colorful patterns can emerge from randomness. 2018.
Original watercolor on watercolor paper, framed.
The piece: 56″ x 42″ inches
