Great article from Huffpost Science about John Sims’ multi media exhibit:
Going beyond the visuals, I had to hear Pi too. So I mapped Pi in the key of b flat creating a Blues composition that the late great Kenny Drew Jr. recorded for me. Then I teamed up with YouTube sensation mathmusician, Vi Hart to cover the first 170 numbers of Pi in the spoken digit “The Pi Day Anthem.” This work of quilts, dresses, poetry, video installation and music based mostly on Pi, comes together in the exhibition, SquareRoots: A Quilted Manifesto, featuring my alter ego Johannes Curtis Schwarzenstein, the AfroGermanJewishMathArtPoet, my testimony to the magical connection between mathematics and art.
