Coded Glass explores the urgency of the #metoo movement, the role of social technology, and the ways in which individual narratives can shape the web as a form of community building through the metaphor of glass, a rich art historical material.

Using collected data and analysis of 2,629,581 #metoo tweets from October 1, 2017 to August 15, 2018 as source material, this project showcases virtual stained glass windows of protest signs, emojis, and hashtags from the #metoo movement as a form of data visualization and metaphor for creating communal sacred spaces. This project is funded by an Immersive Scholar residency at the NCSU Libraries, and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
