We can code it! (for Mother Jones magazine)

A mosaic portrait of Rosie the Riveter made out of code. Created by Charis Tsevis for an article on Mother Jones magazine about diversity and sexism in the IT world.


Best viewed large. Attention: Big file. (10240 x 12032 pixels = 34.1" x 40.1" @ 300 ppi)

Alternately you can zoom in to the high res (123 megapixels) file with Microsoft ZoomIt.


Made with custom developed scripts, hacks and lots of love, using my Mac, Studio Artist, the Adobe Creative Suite and good reggae music.


Based on the famous Rosie the Riveter poster by J. Howard Miller that was never created to illustrate Rosie... :-).

Typeface used is PF DIN Monospace designed by Panos Vassiliou.
