Lot 1

Art in Pi by Nadieh Bremer

Explore the randomness and hidden art of the number π (pi). A circle of 360 degrees is split into 10 different stepping directions and each digit of π defines its own step direction. Two tiny markers show where the path starts and ends. The color conveys where the walk started, walked past and ended, from yellow at the start running through pinks, reds, blues, purples and ending with green. The “pi-walk” was created with R.
