Virtuous Reality & Grafideo are two collaborative video art works created by Adam Void and Ryan Seslow in 2014. Both videos have been included in the Encryptedfills.com project as well as being screened in the main museum space via DVD. The videos were generated purely over the internet with out any verbal communication through out the process. The artists agreed upon a subject to work with (graffiti & hand-style) and began filming and editing their own work independently. By uploading their work to a shared folder the artists would then re-film, re-edit, re-compose and remix the existing work of the other artist. This process repeated over a few months until both artists agreed to stop.
A third video is currently being generated.
