"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 [eg Wollongong World Women Online 1995, 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+ Melbourne 03, Art of the BioTec Era Adelaide 04, p0es1s Berlin 04 + Dissention Convention, Postmaster Gallery New York 04]. Her awards include the 2001 VIF Prize by the Humboldt-Universitat, the JavaMuseum Artist Of The Year 2001, and the 2002 Newcastle New Media Poetry Prize. She was also a finalist for the 2001 Electronic Literature Organizations Fiction Award, 2002 READ_ME Artistic Software Award and the Ngara New Media Poetry Prize 2004.
