In the laser-cut acrylic pi x 5s series, each work systematically interprets, or maps, a different five-digit sequence from the number pi. Here, the values of four digits determine the diameters of half-circles cut from small panels which then overlap to create a square. The fifth digit moves one panel out of the square. Because, on the grand scale, no set of digits in pi repeats, as I expand this series by following the digits in sequence, I can create an infinite number of unique works.
