Title: Research is an Infinite Loop
Author(s): Davis, Theodore
Abstract: This picture does not speak of the immediate research that I am currently pursuing through UIC, it does however speak with a metaphorical tone to my observation of research as a whole. Originally created as a self initiated visualization of the concept 'Inquiry by Design' - I created a short slideshow of ones quest to fill the holes of a piece of Swiss Cheese. In the end, the perfect match was an olive, which upon closer examination also has holes in it, thus leading to a new problem which holds an answer through research. An infinite loop of exploration, if one is so curious.
