Since the beginning
Works in Sydney Australia

Mez does for code poetry as jodi and Vuk Cosic have done for ASCII Art: Turning a great, but naively executed concept into something brilliant, paving the ground for a whole generation of digital artists." (Florian Cramer). The impact of her unique code/net.wurks [constructed via her pioneering net.language "mezangelle"] has been equated with the work of Shakespeare, James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, and Larry Wall. Mez has exhibited extensively since the early 90s [eg Wollongong World Women Online 1995, ISEA Chicago + ARS Electronica 1997, The Metropolitan Museum Tokyo 1999, SIGGRAPH 1999 & 2000, _Under_Score_ @The Brooklyn Academy of Music 2001, +playengines+ Melbourne Australia 2003, p0es1s Berlin 2004, Dissention Convention @Postmaster Gallery New York 2004, Arte Nuevo InteractivA Mexico 2005, Radical Software @Turin Italy 2006, DIWO @ the HTTP Gallery London 2007, New Media Scotland 2008, the Laguna Art Museum California + Alternator Gallery Canada 2009]. Her awards include the 2001 VIF Prize [Germany], the JavaMuseum Artist Of The Year 2001 [Germany], 2002 Newcastle New Media Poetry Prize [Australia], winner of the 2006 Site Specific Index Page Competition [Italy] + awarded the 2007 "Deep Structure: Deep Play" Neutral Ground/Soil Digital Media Commission [Canada]. Mez is also a Synthetic Ecology Strategist, Futurist and Game Theorist who practices _Poetic Game Interventions_ [the creative manipulation of MMO parameters in order to disrupt or comment on various aspects of augmented states].

[webartery] aching trans[ab]lation

[smoothing through the lost (my.cunt)

[ob.jectory 1 seems to want to burst through you. you are all
correspondingly drenched & perfumed groomed as fuming unconscious nodes. do
not dis.appoint.]

[in.vectory 2 wears a "ye old" folding body, weaponed with archaic plague
singers. they ache 2 thread & scorch, but polarise instead. you need
subscriber swingers. you context your wingtips & turn 2
typographic-yearners, all smarm & choco.late vocality. your head tagging &
cock.ed flicking author.ity unintentionally copyrights their poser
tactility taunts. such an auctorial shame.]

[in.varsity 3 engages dream.buoys & life preserver girls, growling for a
gauging, flaming hit. i stamp & tame my blistering conceptual foot.
pornoesque slickness beads on the corners of your unborn mouth. u desire a
format thrill.]

[con.textory 4 dynamically lick & lurch with click shifters & link-shirt
lifters. stenographing stenches hang in your distillate air. you sweat &
shit & symbolically, cholically project.]
