Slippage exists in the grey areas of language and 
social interaction. It is the realm of the 
in-between--the place of disjunction, 
expectations, covert meanderings, and the 
processes and residue of questioning minds. Sites 
selected for "Slippage" explore and expose 
relationships between intention, perception, 
control, experience, behavior, memory, knowing 
and the unexpected.

Artists include Mez Breeze; Krista Connerly; 
Juliet Davis; Lisa Hutton; Paula Levine; Jess 
Loseby, et al.; UBERMORGEN.COM; and Jody Zellen.

"Mez does for code poetry as jodi and Vuk Cosic 
have done for ASCII Art: Turning a great, but 
naively executed concept into something 
brilliant, paving the ground for a whole 
generation of digital artists." (Florian Cramer). 
The impact of her unique code/net.wurks 
[constructed via her pioneering net.language 
mezangelle] has been compared to Shakespeare, 
James Joyce, Emily Dickinson, and Larry Wall. Mez 
has exhibited extensively eg Wollongong World

UBERMORGEN.COM is an artist duo created in 
Vienna, Austria, by Lizvlx and Hans Bernhard, a 
founder of etoy. Behind UBERMORGEN.COM we can 
find one of the most unmatchable identities 
'controversial and iconoclast 'of the 
contemporary European techno-fine-art 
avant-garde. Their open circuit of conceptual 
art, drawing, software art, pixel-painting, 
computer installations, net.art, sculpture and 
digital activism (media hacking) transforms their 
brand into a hybrid Gesamtkunstwerk. 
UBERMORGEN.COM’s work is unique not because of 
what they do but because how, when, where and why 
they do it. The computer and the network are 
(ab)used to create art and combine its multiple 
forms. The permanent amalgamation of fact and 
fiction points toward an extremely expanded 
concept of one’s working materials, that for 
UBERMORGEN.COM also include (international) 
rights, democracy and global communication 
(input-feedback loops). 'Ubermorgen' is the 
German word both for 'the day after tomorrow' or 

Jody Zellen is an artist living in Los Angeles,

Susanne Vielmetter Los Angeles Projects (2002); 
Deep River, Los Angeles (2001). Her net art
