The Activist Developer Who Helps Journalists Protect Data and Sources

Harlo Holmes by Rei Watanabe

“Initially, she only used computers to play videogames. But in college and grad school, she started getting interested in how computers and apps can be used for political purposes.

‘I learned that the way that we write code is actually a form of speech that can be political,’ Holmes once told Rookie Mag.”

This Kinetic Installation Uses Sound to Visualize the World’s CO2 Emissions

(Visualize decarbonization.)

“The CarbonScape installation by Chinese artist Chris Cheung (aka h0nh1m), mimics the sounds of jet engines, ship horns, steam, chimneys, and other carbon emitters, blending them together into an immersive soundscape. The sounds are visualized by a bamboo forest-like field of tubes and black ‘carbon’ balls. The result is a piece of art that speaks to the effects of fossil fuel use and industrialization on our planet.”
