Views of the Tesseract Poster by theFOUNDRY. A tesseract is the four-dimensional analog of the cube; the tesseract is to the cube as the cube is to the square. Just as the surface of the cube consists of 6 square faces, the hypersurface of the tesseract consists of 8 cubical cells.

2^57,885,161 - 1 is the exact number. Like all primes, 2^57,885,161 - 1 is divisible only by itself and 1. But this prime is special. It’s a Mersenne prime—so called because it can be written in the form 2^p - 1, where p is also prime. Prime numbers of this form are named after French monk/mathematician Marin Mersenne, who studied them at the beginning of the 17th century.
Dots are used to represent the adjacency between digits. Each digit 0-9 is represented by a colored segment. Dots assigned to a segment represent digits that follow the digit represented by the segment. The position of the dot is roughly the position within the number that the digit appears.
