Human Readable Messages_[Mezangelle 2003-2011] | Reviewed by Rob Myers.
"Human Readable Messages_[Mezangelle 2003-2011]" is a book published by Traumawien containing almost a decade of Mez Breeze's "Mezangelle" writings. Mezangelle is hand-crafted text with the aesthetics of computer code or protocols. What marks Mezangelle out is how deep its use of those aesthetics go and how effectively it uses them.
"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.
