    Your feature was a great help to our success last year and I wanted to alert you to the next project launched yesterday! This year we are creating another Visualization of Pi in the form of a reflective line graph. The image resembles a soundwave so we will take it to the next level by working with musicians and sound artists to create sonifications of pi as well!

    Here is the link to the kickstarter! kickstarter.com/projects/1604383729/visualize-pi-noise

    Please let us know what you think and share with your networks!

    Thank you!
