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.

On the Pattern of Primes
Jason Davies created this lovely interactive method for visualizing prime numbers, Prime Number Patterns. As a companion to El patron de los numeros primos by Omar E. Pol, the piece very elegantly allows you to explore the prime numbers as well as their relationships to other numbers. By scrolling in any direction, you can pan through the numbers and zoom in and out to see the patterns more clearly.
