Art Description

Sculpture: Cement on Other.

How to create the largest geographic art installation in the world?

Answer: Sell PI

We begin this process by hand casting pieces of the numerical sequence of PI into an infinite number of individual sculptures.

As the work ships around the world, we will track the expansion of the project’s database with a web based data map. Pinpointing three elements of each sculpture: geo-locations, the individual numbers and their specific position along the sequence of this transfinite number. All of 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.

How big are we talking here?
This project will span decades. Tracking the project through online sales and promoting it through social media this will be an infinite series. Continuously updated and always adaptive. As the sequence expands, each year will bring new sets of numbers. And as technology grows, new ways of visualizing the data.

The installation is available to everyone in the world. This purchase includes 4 individual numbers.

This project is part of a much larger series called Real Numbers.
Artists, Patrick Gallagher and Chris Klapper are introducing a new minimalist approach to exploring the poetry of numbers.
