'collusive growth patterns' has such an organic base to it....
yr right, it does...........mite b more appropriate 2 conceptualize it in

what of biodiversity within this vast territory? and endangered species....
yup, the ecology [or netology?] shaping should b considered as vastly
maybe u cd talk a bit more about this aspect of the practice, ie the
formulas and languages -- and also about the point where they leave the
field of authorship, the point where the netwurkers float off from having
anything to do with u/mez -- if this is in fact at all really possible
.. as they are based on 'your' text -- its cadences and patterns .
sure l, good idea:)
......mezangelled texts r produced & trans.lated in2 a variety of lvls,
each coded ][with][in their own meaning trajectories..sometimes i'll wurk
x.clusively within email editors 2 create a mezangelled piece, which i'll
then send out & hope 4 co-collaborators 2 contribute 2 it....other times
i'll send a direct english|poetic translation of the mezangelled text
straight after....& then i can even merge these 2 in a more
multimediac|interactive format..... ppl can then choose 2 utilize their own
personal cues/x.traction abilities according 2 the form that is more
appropriate [ie email text or translated poetic text or even flash if i
mutate it that far]..............i'll b.gin with the initial concept which
may spring from lines of text|code that i've been noting in separate
email-editor files...then the structure usually m.merges from this, via a
method of appropriation [ie mimicking of a international relay chat
transcript or actually using 1 that i may have participated in, or a
stretch of stylistically (or executably) -breathtaking code]..........
......i employ a melange of ico][de][nographs, fragments of programming
language-shards [mostly Perl] + operating system echos:: tree-structure +
wildcard refs, booleanisms, unix shell commands, html + java script
conventions, ascii, all in semi-random but heavily stylized patterns...the
randomness exists in the formulation, as i'm sure i somehow n.nately follow
various rules of thumb[s] that rn't consciously apparent [2 me,
anyway:)].........the repeated allusions 2 hyperlinks via bracketing of
meanings [hopefully] lead 2 alternative curves to absorption &
understanding....[almost a mimicking of the x.pansion of the potentialities
of co:d][iscours][e].......the main ele.ment][al][s that keeps mezangelled
creched in the netwurk is information trawling, the draw][l][ of netwurk
language & symbol con][inter][ventions & the collaboratory n.tent, & this
is often where the texts leave conventional authorship-attribution lines....
....i always write & send via email listings, MOO environs etc in the hope
that the wurk will spiral out in2 a collaborative e.vent....even if the
scissored textings don't e.voke a direct response, the fact that the
method, formulation & *.exe.][elo][cution r geared 2wards it means
mezangelle could not x.ist without the netwurk as a sub][im][mergence
arena....it is more this aspect that allows 4 the identity tags 2 function
as meaning|creator cues than actual severing from 'my' text as such..........
do you often use other texts, random texts and has this latter aspect
changed over time?
absolutely....mezangelle first began with[in] the 7-11 & nettime mailing
lists [b4 nettime became heavily moderated]........back then the m.mphasis
was more centred around active textual manipulation of items that were
being sent 2 these list....m@ [who has now morphed into the artist better
known as meta] & i would take it in turns 2 content-alter tracts using
scripting-emulations...this content alteration has now shifted 2
manipulation of other artists works, & this makes 4 some amazing
