OS Grabeland is a collaborative, open-source project connected to two plots of land owned by the artists in Nevada and former East Germany. Though radically different culturally and topographically, neither site has access to a convenient natural or artificial water source. By instigating OS Grabeland in both communities simultaneously the artists are setting up a collaborative system for writing a visual code, which will be compiled through social websites such as blogs, wikis, youtube and facebook. When the rising tide lifts all boats, this evolving virtual source of knowledge and the location of a viable source of water will be converted into lines of universally applicable code.
