Creative Spotlight Week is over, but I figure I'll still do them from time to time, as the muse strikes. And the next contender is someone I've been dying to write about for ages... but I haven't been able to do her justice. See, whenever I try to write about Mez Breeze, I just can't articulate the awesome enough communicate it to anybody else. That's surely because the only language you can use to convey Mezness is of her own making -- mezangelle -- and for sure I'm not a fluent speaker.
Mez is a code poet and internet performer, and besides mezangelle, she (and sometimes her collaborators) have brought the world such works as Streamflow Conditions and Augmentology 1[L]0[L]1. She lives at the intersection of art and technology like nobody else I know, and the result is always on the spectrum of mysterious, deep, and terribly, brain-warpingly clever.
But here's the best part! I am beyond excited to tell you about FeralC, Mez's new project, which is launching in just a few hours. The site describes it thus:
_feralC_ is a “socumentary” [mix of social_networking mockumentary & Alternate Reality Sequencing] that will trace the Twitter output of special networked characters.
To take part, follow the Twitter list @pupa_mistress/feralC. The show kicks off at 3pm on the East Coast of Australia, which as best I can figure is about 1am on the East Coast of the United States.
I don't know much more about it, but I can assure you it is going to be totally awesome and you won't want to miss it. Keep your eyes peeled.
