Slippage is an exhibition of curated by Nanette Wylde. Sites selected for Slippage explore and expose relationships between intention, perception, control, experience, behavior, memory, knowing and the unexpected. Ultimately these works reveal fragilities and instabilities in the phenomena of meaning. 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.

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.

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,, 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 'super-tomorrow'.

Jody Zellen is an artist living in Los Angeles, California who works in many media simultaneously making photographs, installations, net art, public art, as well as artists' books that explore the subject of the urban environment.
