The site essentially opperates as a h[er]istory of the development of a net.worked creative feedback niche, and is continually updated and changing.
mo[ve.men]tion has been up and running since 1995. It's a site devoted to the push and pull of new media and avatar/collaborative layering via a networked medium. The emphasis of the site revolves around my polysemic language system termed mezangelle, which evolved/s from multifarious email exchanges, computer code flavoured language and net iconographs. To mezangelle means to take words/wordstrings/sentences and alter them in such a way as to extend and enhance meaning beyond the predicted or the expected. It's similar to making "plain" text hypertext via the arrangement and dissection of words. Mezangelling attempts to expand the traditional text parametes through layered/aternative meanings embedded into meta-phonetic renderings of language.
The mo[ve.men]tion site chronicles the use of the network [being "online"] through a series of "net.wurks"; projects that have had at their base this mezangelled system [e.g., directed email/irc exchanges and performances]. The site represetns a mixture of mezangelled net.wurks with multimedia pieces [such as the director piece "Linguidity Function ++", an email dialogue between 2 virtual entities] and the intention of feedback & critique within the site itself [e.g., "tech.no]PhobE Knott Phound" at http://wollongong.starway.net.au/~mezandwalt/nav.htm The site essentially opperates as a h[er]istory of the development of a net.worked creative feedback niche, and is continually updated and changing. What cannot be documented there is the continual email performance multilogue that hides behind the concreted net.wurks themselves; the thousands of emailed pieces only partially accessible in data resonances and email archives [see 711 archive, or the trAce online writing community experimental archive for a more complete picture].
