Visualizing Digital Scholarship:
#metoo and Digital Stained-Glass

**Ongoing research project 

“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

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 and reflection through stained glass imagery, 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 the Immersive Scholar Andrew W. Mellon Foundation grant at North Carolina State University.
