"I think poets in particular play a really important role in drawing attention to the way these technologies are evolving...Mez Breeze is maybe the most recognizable Glitch Poetics artist that I mention, in that her way of writing is a composite of code language (so algorithms or a written piece of code) and a poem....They are really striking...they open up this kind of multiple possibilities and multiple punnings that are there within a word. They kind of stop you from reading them, and in place of that...you're noticing all the little inferences that are actually available within each word...It is a post-human writing."

Captivated by Mez Breeze's poetry, activism & intervention. Check out #Prisom anti-surveillance game http://t.co/jN2IBmvOAM @MezBreezeDesign— Saito (@SaitoGroup) July 10, 2015
"Mez Breeze embraces the medium of digital writing, producing highly original work with striking visual force. We were impressed by the diversity of her creative practice and her willingness to present daring writing in an accessible way. We think that writers like Mez are redefining contemporary poetry." - Judges for the 2015 Thiel Grant Award for Online Writing.
"You probably know the fabulous Mez for her signature codework language mezangelle or for her fabulous collaborations with Andy Campbell, but Mez was also one of my chief mentors in netprov. Back when Workstudy Seth was running my social media, Mez gave me advice from afar, guiding me away from some real "danger zones," as Archer would call them. Truly with her online personas, she's been performing one of the longest-running netprovs around. In our special issue of Hyperrhiz, Mez presents two #netprovs: #OutsideurDoor and _feralC. Read about them and sample some transcripts here." - Mark Marino, Hyperrhiz.
[On"Human Readable Messages"] "[A] classic...A sea of linguistic invention: unsurpassed technical innovation in terms of print language. Reading the various passages for the first time I felt I was privy to a new form of expression not merely a creole or amalgam, something really new. Mez is brilliant." - Michael J. Maguire
"Code Poetry often refers to work such as Mez Breeze’s. Her Mezangelle complicates the line between human and machine communication in a way informed more from a literary tradition than code art’s contemporary art perspective. The broken, code-like assemblages of words layer meanings, but unlike in code art, it’s not important for the resulting piece to function as executable code. Code poetry is a creole between machine and human communication." - Daniel Temkin, "Esoteric.codes"
