"When I first encountered mez's work the association with contemporary clichés of language didn't even occur to me for quite some time - i saw it as something else completely. the difference: CONTENT/intent. mez doesn't play this way with language because of trendi-ness or eaze, but with deliberate intent/choice. [this] FORM as integral to her content, and as [a] form of communication which is distinguished by her particular content/treatment/meaning ... also, it doesn't read with the eaze that phonetic treatment of language usually duz - in youth filled chat rooms for instance - one has to dig a bit, step back and read with conscious intent/concentration if one's is to actually gather what's being said, which brings a new attention to reading, akin to that which we bring to Shakespeare, etc."
