Pi as a color chart
@Alyssa this would make cool wall art
The quest on the mystery of Pi number never stops. Visual Techniques advancing, so we can visualize more numbers in the Pi decimals. However, Is there really a pattern in those numbers? Are we going to see a great (holy?) picture at the end? I am not sure about what we are going to figure out but some of these images look like they are purely designed.

Jim Denevan, 2010, Land (or better Ice) art at Lake Baikal, Siberia.
Jim Denevan's massive land art on Lake Baikal
These huge concentric forms were created by American artist Jim Denevan by carving out ice from frozen Lake Baikal in Siberia. The artist, who created similar massive art on sand in the Nevada desert in 2009, headed out to Siberia this year to draw these beautiful patterns on ice with a team of helpers and a broom. Denevan is known for creating expansive, meditative works with repetitive patterns and endless scale. The Baikal artwork spans an area of nine square miles!
LE CONTAINER: Jim Denevan landart on Baïkal dav.
The incredible concentric forms you see above are neither crop circles nor alien landings -- they are part and parcel of the world's largest artwork, which spans nine square miles! Jim Denevan, who created the previous worlds-largest-artwork in the Nevada desert last year, headed out to Siberia this year to draw these beautiful patterns on ice with a team of helpers and a broom. Denevan is known for creating expansive, meditative works with repetitive patterns and endless scale.
