_[net]blog to log][ah!rhythm][__[net]blog to log][ah!rhythm][_ is a reverse-engineered weblog - read: _bio_log_ as opposed 2 a standardized weblog. this meshwork of biology/biography + technology [in log form] is inscribed using the 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 hypertextual via the arrangement and dissection of words. Mezangelling attempts to expand traditional text parameters through layered/alternative/code based meanings embedded into meta-phonetic renderings of language. _[net]blog to log][ah!rhythm][_ uses the net.work as potential for bio_mimicry, utilizing realtime_units [readers ie hence potential collaborators] as a standard of interaction.
mezMary-Anne Breeze [aka Mez] creates unique code/net.wurks [constructed via her pioneering net.language "mezangelle"] that are equated with the work of Shakespeare, James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, and Larry Wall. Mez has exhibited extensively since the early 90's [eg CTHEORY's Digital Dirt, ISEA_97 Chicago, ARS Electronica_97, The Metropolitan Museum Tokyo, SIGGRAPH_99&00, _Under_Score_ @ The Brooklyn Academy of Music 01, +playengines+ 03, and p0es1s 04.]. Mez is also a networked jillaroo, an online journalist and co-moderator of the _arc.hive_ experimental mailing list.
