Holmes’ research and practice explores the potential of technology to promote positive environmental stewardship. Recent projects include a commission for the National Center for Supercomputing Applications where sequences of experimental animations visualize real time energy loads. Her paper detailing this work, “Eco-visualization: Combining art and technology to reduce energy consumption,” won a Best Paper award at Creativity and Cognition 2007 and a 2010 doctoral degree. She lectures and exhibits worldwide in venues that include the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, 01SJ Biennial, Siggraph 2000, World@rt in Denmark, and ISEA Nagoya. A recipient of the Michigan Society of Fellows research fellowship in 1998, Holmes has earned the Illinois Arts Council individual grant, an Artists-in-Labs residency award in Switzerland, and a 2010 Rhizome Commission.
