Mez is also a Synthetic Ecology Strategist and Game Theorist who practices _Poetic Game Interventions_ (the creative manipulation of MMO parameters in order to disrupt or comment on various aspects of augmented states). She is the executive editor of the blog _Augmentology 1[L]0[L]1_, a working manual discussing the formation and evolution of synthetic environments. She is a Vilém Flusser Theory Award 2011 nominee at this year’s Transmediale for her work on Social Tesseracting.
