Yes folks, you have read that correctly. For obvious reasons, I felt it would be excellent to render Pi using my handwriting. And why not? After all, it’s a famous series of non-repeating digits; perhaps the most famous irrational number of all time.
How many digits are in this picture? I don’t know. I could count, but so could you. It’s thousands, however. Go ahead; zoom in. Count the digits. Look for errors, and if you find any (and if you make it easy for me to believe you) then I’ll do this over again… but I’m pretty sure it’s right. I based this work on the 100,000 Digits of Pi page.
Why was it important to do this in my handwriting? Because of “obviously.” …as in, the self-evidence of writing pi in the style of my own handwriting is axiomatic, and requires no justification. In fact, simply asking “why would anyone do this” is what needs to be justified.
So, there you have it. It’s Pi, and it’s my handwriting. There’s more to this story, but I shall leave that for another day.
