71 numbers
on a round wall
I installed 71 numbers of high-grade steel on a round wall. All numbers, except the first, are digits of the wellknown in science number e = 2,718281828459... The connection of a Pi-defined wall with a horizontal line, that is formed by "e" was the obvious thing to make because of the brilliant formula, that was created by Euler: e exp (i*pi) = – 1 2 glass objects

PSE: 69 696 red squares show the chemical properties of 112 elements. The digits define the color of the square. M33: The 258 716 digits of the prime number M 33 = 2 exp 859433 - 1, found in 1994 by David Slowinski and Paul Gage, are written in 458 rows and 565 columns. p : The first 75 492 digits of the circular number Pi were transformed into ellipses and arranged in 699 rows and 108 columns. e: The first 718 281 digits of "e" were transformed into a trace. const: Extracts of fundamental scientific works by Aristoteles, Kopernikus, Kepler, Darwin, Freud and Einstein were transformed into a new script. |
