π CYMBAL | 2014 | 18" diameter | Acrylic on broken 1960's Zildjan cymbal, π written from memory to 4,996 digits. π begins at the outer diameter (upper right quadrant) and spirals in.
I grew up playing drums, as did my father,
who gifted me his vintage drum set.
As I was playing one day the bell of one of the cymbals fell through, broken off as a piece.
Years later I appropriated it to carry the digits of π.
