Poetry. Literary Nonfiction. Art. Code. New media. Net.art. Hybrid Genre. "Don't mistake this for an experimental poetry book. This is a five-year archival snapshot of text-streaming transmissions; a recording that documents continuity. The streams captured in this volume were composed in a period after net.art email forums had disappeared. 'New media' had, in the meantime, ceased to be new. The arts terms 'post-internet' and 'the new aesthetic' describe this state of affairs where online and offline, digital and analogue, can no longer be separated. Since this blending had always been characteristic for mezangelle, Breeze's text streaming both practiced and transcended 'new media.' Her streaming of consciousness is wired in every syllable."—Florian Cramer
