Pi

€20
The first 47 decimal places of Pi take up just 2.5 cm of the first line of this poster. More than most might care to remember. In a calculation however, this small fragment is “sufficiently precise to inscribe a circle around the visible universe, that does not deviate from perfect circularity by more than the distance across a single proton*”. Accurate enough for most deities.
   Our poster shows a mere 1 million decimal places, first calculated in 1973 by Guilloud and Bouyer on a Cray supercomputer. Peer into this swarm of numbers and patterns emerge and dissolve before your eyes: dark chains of 9s, teasing pairs of 2s and 3s, meaningless symmetries. With 360 degrees in a circle, is it obvious or miraculous that the first string of 360 digits ends with 3, 6 and 0? Profound pandemonium! Mystical multitudes! Abandon practical considerations and keep counting: cosmic truths might be found on any line.
