This is what the world’s biggest prime number looks like.

I took the raw numeric data from the new, 17-million-digit prime, broke it into 6-digit chunks, converted that to RGB colors, and made an image.

Life Chart - Beta

This is my first take at visualizing general tasks I do daily between age 0-32. It also highlights significant events of the last 20 years. I am hoping to expand it to showcase more events, perhaps find some way to illustrate work vs play and how sometimes the line blurs.
