The i ring was constructed by Mika Pawson and a team of university students in the year of 2987. The i ring was developed because the lack of organization for the mathematics department. The i ring is not an actual place, but an imaginary ring with several entrances to it. Since i is an imaginary number as well, it seemed to be an "in" joke amongst the math students. They would take the space and square it only to create that of negative space, which in return caused the i ring to come into existence.
