This work was created for eLife, a non-profit organisation inspired by research funders and led by scientists. This artwork was designed to complement a series of articles discussing meta-research, research that uses scientific methods to study science itself. This artwork was designed to complement the articles which discussed this meta-science and diverse topics including gender bias in peer review, statistical power in clinical trials and the readability of the scientific literature.
The artwork displays the highly complex world of metadata depicted by the overwhelming amount of pages in the air. Analysis of the metadata allows to better understand and evaluate previously discovered data points that are stacked on top of each other.
