Mez has been at the center of the center-less discourse about networks, writing and codework ever since the listserv started to be a vehicle for the dissemination of artistic ideas among artists. Rather than explore or critique network communication from an implied "outside," however, mez has situated herself within the very operations of the network, her writing never entirely separating itself from the protocols that govern the transportation and presentation of words and images. The bountiful work of mez is everywhere but nowhere, the mystical overtones are intentional as she calls her digital-creole "mezangelle", and this most software-aware project is actually software independent, as mez has no patience or capacity for operating within the fixity of an "application," not to mention that of the person, place or nation-state.
