Data Visualization 2D series - π Study
Medium: various traditional media on drafting film
Dimension: 24” x 36”
Working with the infinite numerical digits of pi, the π study series encompassed a wide range of material and medium that explored the methods of display and representation for large data sets.
Here are hand-done 2D pieces that translate numerical data into design elements such as lines, values, circles, curves and colors. The randomness in the π sequence introduces chance operation in creating a visual composition that posses unity with variation. In 2012, “Values of was π” was adopted by Paul W. Hadley’s illustration in his paper, Evaluating “Hot Spots” of Soil Contamination, from the California Environmental Protection Agency.
