Truisms takes initial cues from Jenny Holzer’s text based works of the same name. In Versteeg’s work, linguistic phrases from Holzer are used as a jumping off point for visual content and interpretation. Images based on the Holzer phrases and Googled in real-time are continuously incorporated into an endless array of rich compositions which refresh every 3 minutes before disappearing forever. These 4k resolution virtual paintings incorporate elements from Versteeg’s practice of algorithmic code works which collide choice and chance to reveal ongoing perspectives about the world we inhabit and collectively document through participation in digital culture.
