Art & Design: Artist Versteeg Makes Abstract Works with Algorithms
Beautiful Decay recently featured an article on a new kind of “painting” developed by artist Siebren Versteeg. Versteeg has created a set of algorithms that work to create an “abstract painting” through computer code. Versteeg’s algorithms are based on his own observations of patterns and techniques of abstract expressionism (i.e. drips), and his code uses these algorithms to create a unique abstract expressionist composition to later be printed onto canvas or paper.
What do our 12oz readers make of this kind of “painting?” Is it really painting? Is it the future of painting? Does it have absolutely nothing at all to do with painting? Is it still art? Let us know your thoughts, and check out Danny Olda’s post on Beautiful Decay to learn more about Versteeg’s program.
