Coded Glass explores the urgency of the #MeToo movement, and the role of social technology, through immersive forms of digital stained glass.
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 visualization and a metaphor for creating communal sacred spaces. This project is funded in part by a 2018 Immersive Scholar Grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
“Me Too is a movement to, among other things, radicalize the notion of mass healing. As a community we create a lot of space for fighting and pushing back but not enough for connecting and healing.”- Tarana Burke, founder of #metoo
