Siebren Versteeg (American, b. 1971).

This is a digital work.

Siebren Versteeg is an American multidisciplinary artist who employs imagery from the digital world and translates them to a new visual format. Utilizing automated algorithms, Versteeg’s works manipulate and distort digital content and present them in newer contexts, gently teasing with elements of space and time.

Today’s Paper (with flies) depicts a self-portrait of the artist seated in front of their NYC studio, reading a newspaper, as presented in a digital TV format. The paper’s image within is updated with the latest edition daily; continuously reflecting the passing of time and the news of the moment. Over the course of a 24-hour cycle, algorithmically animated flies appear within the tableau with increasing frequency.


Dimensions are variable based on monitor size
