Talan Memmott's Lexia to Perplexia is a rich and complex exploration of the relationship between human consciousness and network phenomenology. Alluding to traditions ranging from ancient Greek and Egyptian myth to postmodern literary theory, using a creole of human language and code, Lexia is a work in which the functioning and malfunctioning of the interface itself carries as much meaning as the words and images that compose the text.
