Virtuous Reality

Virtuous Reality – 2014, Adam Void & Ryan Seslow

We both have mutual friends and roots in graffiti and street art but we connected via the internet. I discovered Adam’s work online several years ago, but it was through the Streaming Festival and a post on  that activated us to get working on this series. The process follows a pass the buck arrangement. By using dropbox we wait for each other to complete a video segment and then work off of the last extension of the piece based on our own interpretations. We can both alter, chop, manipulate and re-arrange each others work. This gives us both the option to see our own works through the eyes of another artist. I have learned a lot about how my works can be viewed and perceived. – Ryan Seslow
“One is never certain of the final outcome when an artwork is produced through collaboration. Virtuous Reality was created without a preconceived theme, title, or running time. Each artist was inspired by the previous incarnation of the video, added their piece, rearranged the parts, and in turn, produced a new film at each step of the process. I am pleasantly surprised by the video’s outcome, and hope that the final product stands as a testament to the process by which it was made.” – A.Void
