‘The Numbers Are All Randomized’: Variations on Pi at Frieze New York – @ARTnews0 (0)
5 de Maio, 2016
At Frieze New York on Randall’s Island, Galerie Hervé Bize’s fair booth eschewed the typical white-cube aesthetic in favor of an overload in blues and reds. A sequence of enlarged pixels, resembling an enormous scan code, patterned both the walls and floor. Upon first glance, the pattern appears repetitive, though it is actually a random distribution of squares based on the decimal numbers of pi. Blue pixels represent odd numbers, while red represents even ones. (To really hammer the point home, the wallpaper work, created between 1963 and 2016, is explicitly titled Random distribution of squares using the π number decimals, 50% odd digit blue, 50% even digit red.)
