Botanical Primes

Visualizing prime factorization for 100 numbers

$31.50 / 32″ × 32″

Botanical Primes is an artistic experiment visualizing prime factorization for 100 numbers.

Each number capable of factorization (2–101) is factorized to its primes. Each prime factor is represented by a ring of "leaves" around a center point colored with a light-to-dark gradient. Purple center points indicate prime numbers that cannot be factorized. Numbers were arranged randomly in an circle shape for an aesthetically-pleasing wall poster and in a grid with information about each number
