BIO

She has been nominated for a Richard Driehaus Foundation award and was nominated in 2002 for a Rockefeller New Media Fellowship. Her work was recently selected by curator Michael Rush for inclusion in the new edition of his book, Video Art.

Holmes maintains a blog, ecoviz.org to chronicle new developments in her emerging practice of eco-visualization, the practice of making hidden ecological information visible to the public.
