22/7 = 3.142857 142857 142857 ...

28.09.2017 – 08.04.2018
192 prints of stripe are chosen and presented together on a huge
wall. There is one print for each day of the exhibition at Museum
Ritter. The choice of the prints and their sequence is not accidental
or subjective, but instead arrived at by using the digits in the
decimal expansion of the fraction 22/7, an old approximation to π.
22/7 = 3.142857 142857 142857 ... The group of six digits after the decimal point repeats an infinite
number of times. Each digit is used to determine the choice of print:
a print with one single distinctive stripe in a particular colour
corresponds to the number “1”, and one with four stripes in a certain
colour to “4”, and so on. 22/7 defines a sequence that works in a
subtle way that is not obvious when first seen.
Wear on each day between September 28th and April 4th the
corresponding T-shirt according to the sequence. Visualize on your
daily portraits the number of the day (1,4,2,8,5,7) in any way you
