Neither do I.  ;D

Well, I thought at first that the two halves of the infinity could be made into
a sort of db, but it's more of a bd shape.  So then I thought that if you put a
db in front of the infinity, then you could somehow tie into the infinity from
the front, and have it work.

Since that might be a little sketchy, then I thought that maybe if the db and
the infinity were somehow "open" on both front and back (like neon sign letters
made from a single tube), you could have a continuous "spline" going all the way
around, and then project a shadow on a background to give a "closed" db that
morphs into a "closed" infinity and back again - maybe with something clever in
the transitions.
