1st to 31st July 2008

Get Twitterwurk Set, Go! We were proud to announce that our second Twitter residency was Australian artist Netwurker Mez.

"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:

Wollongong World Women Online, 1995 / ISEA, 1997 Chicago USA / ARS Electronica, 1997 / The Metropolitan Museum, Tokyo Japan 1999 / SIGGRAPH, 1999 & 2000 / _Under_Score_ @The Brooklyn Academy of Music, USA 2001 / +playengines+, Melbourne Australia 2003 / p0es1s, Berlin Germany 2004 / Arte Nuevo InteractivA, Yucatan Mexico 2005 / Radical Software @Turin Italy, 2006 / DIWO @ the HTTP Gallery London, 2007 / Y O U . O W N . M E. N O W . U N T I L . Y O U . F O R G E T . A B O U T . M E. Museum of Modern Art Ljubljana 2008
