Alfredo Salazar-Caro and William James Richard Robertson's DiMoDa, or The Digital Museum of Digital Art, is a virtual museum carefully curated to show off cutting-edge works of art. The museum also has a physical presence starting November 14th at TRANSFER gallery in Brooklyn.

Say Salazar-Caro and Robertson, "FIrst and foremost, we want to go as far away as possible from the white wall model. We always have discussions about these VR galleries, that just put you inside of something that you could see practically anywhere else, they 'hang' a JPEG on the wall and think they are revolutionizing the world. We really want to take advantage of the power of VR and we hope that as the technology becomes more powerful, we’ll be able to push those boundaries even further.

"We also want to focus on the quality of our exhibitions," they continue. "One often problematic symptom of and a lot of new media is that it’s produced fast and it’s outputted fast to keep up with an ever-hungry internet. We want to exhibit only twice a year, and only under five artists each time, in order to assure that we create high quality and masterful experiences that can stand on against any work of art of any discipline."
