    • Save the Past for Our Future 

      Piscitelli, Matthew (2009)
      This image is a visual testament to the widespread looting that occurs throughout much of the developing world. In countries such as Peru, individuals are finding that raping their own heritage for ancient pots and textiles ...
    • Sea of Cells 

      Gasper, Gerald (2009)
      Staph. epidermidis is an elusive bacterial microorganism responsible for many infections that occur during the introduction of implant devices in humans. As shown in this image, cells are spherical and about 1 micron in ...
    • Self-assembly of semiconductor nanorods 

      Titov, Alexev (2009)
      The image represents the self-assembly of semiconductor nanorods (NR) on a substrate. Semiconductor cylinder-shaped nanoparticles of 6 nm in diameter and about 10 nm in height are typically prepared and solvated in organic ...
    • Semilattice City 

      Shader, Nora (2009)
      My research identifies a current scape of the contemporary city and then projects a potential design intervention. Contemporary cities implement a series of building extrusions on the grid. The result is a sectional ...
    • The Sensitivity of Cells to a 3D Environment 

      Curtis, Matthew (2009)
      The purpose of cell culture has historically been to study the basic units of life in a controlled and isolated manner. This has long meant transferring cells from their complex environments found in the body onto sustainable ...
    • Sensor Design 

      Basati, Suhki (2010)
      The maintenance of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) volume is crucial for normal brain physiology. A condition known as hydrocephalus can occur when CSF accumulates in the ventricles due to an obstruction such as a tumor. In ...
    • The Shapes of Desire on Cerro Baúl 

      Davis, Mary (2010)
      "After a 2,000-foot climb to the top of Cerro Baúl, the summit presents the illusion of being even higher; a far-away landscape as seen from an airplane. Fields, meadows, houses, and outbuildings flow in every direction ...
    • Signal Processing #2 

      Thompson, Christopher (2008)
      Our laboratory is interested in the mechanisms underlying recovery of locomotion following human spinal cord injury (SCI). We have shown that subjects with motor incomplete SCI (sparing of some volitional motor control) ...
    • Simulation of a Freight Car on a Spiral Track 

      Afshari, Ali (2011)
      "System Dynamics especially Railroad Vehicle Dynamics are used to predict the behavior of these systems under different initial conditions and external forces. To do that, DSL students often create 3D models of the bodies ...
    • Simulation of fluid flow in a microfluidic brain slice device (mBSD) 

      Caicedo, Hector (2009)
      Microfluidic perfusion systems for thick brain slice cultures enable the control of in vitro microenvironments. Since the purpose of in vitro tissue culture is often to investigate the function of live tissue, devices must ...
    • A Site Plan for the Institute of Urban Studies 

      Busscher, Matthew M. (2015)
      My research at UIC is within the field of architecture and design processes, specifically on metacognitive feedback loops and self-criticality within the design process. I've focused my research on visual representation ...
    • Six Degrees of Hollywood 

      Lahiri, Mayank (2009)
      This is an example of a complex social network – each circle represents a person associated with the entertainment industry (including actors, musicians and directors) and a line is drawn between two people if they appear ...
    • Slow Burn 

      Sirianni, Michael (2010)
      "In my thesis project I search for patterns in the unintended and look for momentary vulnerabilities where artifice begins to break down. I am fascinated with such fissures because I believe they operate as signifiers of ...
    • So Many Ends of the World 

      Pirtle, John (2010)
      This image is a still from my Fall 2009 research project, So Many Ends of the World, a digital stereoscopic (3d) film designed for the C-Wall, a passive/active stereoscopic projection system. This system was pioneered at ...
    • Somerset 

      De La Torre, Rebecca M. (2015)
      The image is a photograph of a model that represents an architectural studio project. This particular photograph is focused on the use of the circle as a way to organize the architectural plan. The circles are used as ...
    • Sorry, We’re Closed 

      Michels, John (2009)
      The deregulation of global capital has led to the gentrification of portions of the Canadian countryside adjacent to large cities, creating new opportunities for capital investment by transforming working class spaces into ...
    • Spectra of Mathematics Identities 

      Leavitt, Della (2009)
      My research into the life story of “Ms. Lewiston”, a Black middle grades mathematics teacher, reveals her dedication to underserved students and to their emerging self-confidence as “doers” of mathematics. Students’ ...
    • SpiderSense 

      Mateevitsi, Viktor A.; Renambot, Luc (2016)
      My research is at the intersection of humans and technologies and explores how technologies can augment and enhance humans and human interactions. The field, known as Human Augmentics, looks into how to increase human ...
