It's been a good long while since I've had the time to update y'all on shenanigans here at Mez Breeze Design and believe me, the shenanigans have been lapping at a brimmingly-high-level with oodleloads of events, creative works and projs both happening and in the pipe. So I'm breaking out of this time-imposed CoS [Cone of Silence] to let you fine folks know about just two such events for now [nuthin' like leaving you hanging on the others, huh], both of which involve the Electronic Literature Organisation.
"Queensland Digital Writing on the international stage: QUT and The Writing Platform" is an Arts Queensland-funded programme which supports collaborations between writers and interactive designers to develop works for exhibition on The Writing Platform. The first project supported by the programme is 'Provocare', a digital fiction, created by Meg Vann, Mez Breeze and Donna Hancox.
It's not often I get to post here about codework [I nearly typed "codwork" instead then, heh]. Way back in the 1990's when this thing called the "World Wide Web" was kicking off [you *may* just have heard of it?] codework and code poetry were virtually unrecognised genres. Back then, Alan Sondheim, Ted Warnell, Talan Memmott, the anarcho 7-11 crew [myself included], and various Eastgate and Electronic Lit types were rampantly gestating this mix of poetically-infused codecraft.
Rumors of My Death Source Text- "The Guardian" After an amazing development meeting earlier today with Simon Groth, head honcho of the Oz branch of if:book, I thought I'd take the opportunity to fill you in on some discrete details regarding our new remix project called "Rumors of My Death" [#RoMD]. If that sounds like something that's right up your creative alley, please feast your no-doubt-friday-workbleached-eyes on the following.
Very happy to have been a part of this fabbo festival. See you next year, indeedily.
