_the data][h!][bleeding texts_
by Mez

"_the data][h!][bleeding t.ex][e][ts" are remnants from email performances devoted to the dispersal of writing that has been inspired and mutated according to the dynamics of an active network. The texts make use of the polysemic language system termed mezangelle, which evolved/s from multifarious email exchanges, computer code flavored language, and net iconographs.

This work is accesible on the web at netwurkerz.de/mez/datableed/complete. It employs DHTML and animations, and therefore a current web browser is recommended for reading the site.
