working out to π


 
In MNEMONIC EXERCISES I recite π from memory by counting reps as I exercise. The process is documented live using Twitter and Tumblr's APIs.

An optimistic approach to the project might see physical and mental exercise as symbiotic. Physical exercise could benefit the memorization of π through muscle memory. The mental stimulation of reciting π has the potential to make exercising more enjoyable.

A less optimistic approach might see this a prohibitively restrictive framework, where my physical movement is quantized and analyzed. Broadcasting one's exercise routine might even bring to mind certain scenes from Orwell's 1984.
