Experience at SAIC
SAIC is an amazing place to work. I moved to Chicago in the year 2000 to start the millennium in the Windy City. My favorite aspect of working at SAIC is the incredibly diverse and talented population of students and faculty.
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 these venues: Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, J.
