The article takes the phrase MyResearch.com as an opening metaphor to explore underlying issues in linking research with teaching in the areas of art, design and media. In part, MyResearch.com is suggestive of a culture of scholarship becoming something like the social networks of Second Life, MySpace and YouTube, all of which have set new trends in promoting and sharing various media output. However, the phrase also captures a more critical point about the reification of ideas, warning against research becoming some kind of commodity or tool we might neatly apply to our teaching. Drawing connections between the intellectual fashions of the early twentieth century flneurs and bohemians and our own twenty-first century digital culture, the article speculates upon what research really means in the arts and seeks to reclaim what is distinctive about the arts and art education's ethical commitment to the world in which we live.
