Anne Adams, ‘Pi’ (1998)

The work portrays the first 1,471 digits (plus the decimal point) of the mathematical ratio pi. With white, black, and component colors of the white light spectrum marking each integer from 0 to 9, Adams tried to capture the randomness of pi’s expansion.

‘Calculator haikus’, by Amos Latteier

Latteier wrote haikus by using the numbers on calculators to form words and then turning the calculator upside down.

“The calculator vocabulary is rather limited. I have come up with 118 words. I wrote a program to search the dictionary and select words that can be spelled using the letters that can be formed on a calculator. Among these are such choice words as **gigolo**, **besiege**, and **ghee**.”

Here’s one:

*“Illegible blob
Legless eggshell oozes oil
Elegize his loss*

*Hellish shoe is beige
I slosh soil, slog hill*

* Hobble, oh high heel”*

Wait Until II (2006) by Kris Vleeschouwer

A glass is mounted on a small shelf. Under the shelf a display with 3 numbers is always moving. When, by chance, the display shows 3 identical numbers, a piston pushes the glass a little bit to the edge until finaly it falls. After this “accident” the process starts all over again with a new glass.
