Arsnl Art presents Siebren Versteeg, "For a Limited Time"
Versteeg’s algorithms generate painterly collages that transform images of current events into works that are erotic, prophetic, sometimes terrifying, often humorous, and always revelatory.

NEW YORK, NY.- Following the success of Frank Stella’s Geometries, Arsnl Art announced its latest sale, For a Limited Time, with pioneering generative artist Siebren Versteeg. The 12-month artistic experiment, which relies on collector interventions to memorialize moments in the artwork’s process, will take place exclusively on Arsnl.Art, starting in early March 2023. A physical exhibition of the project was presented by bitforms gallery at the opening of the Santa Monica Art Museum during Frieze LA.

The Project

Versteeg’s algorithms generate painterly collages that transform images of current events into works that are erotic, prophetic, sometimes terrifying, often humorous, and always revelatory. For a year, Versteeg will generate a new work every 10 to 15 minutes, using trending stories scraped from the internet as source material. Each work will only exist "for a limited time" before being replaced by the next. However, if a collector can’t bear to see the moment go, they can claim the work, cementing the art and their personal connection with time onto the blockchain.

The collector becomes a curator of time, choosing which moments to save and which to let slip away. Collectors will not only shape the narrative but also become part of it, as their "identities" are embedded into the metadata as the curator of each saved moment.

“I am extremely delighted for the opportunity to bring my art to the NFT community with ARSNL. Our hybrid approach in For A Limited Time effectively synthesizes my interest in presenting current events and generative algorithms in real-time as well as asserting the idea that value be declared collaboratively. I look forward to witnessing this seedling grow into a unique and collectively memorialized collection that documents our upcoming year.” – Siebren Versteeg

Siebren Versteeg

Siebren Versteeg (1971) is a pioneer of algorithmic generative art. Heralded by Vulture as “chaotic but illuminating”, the magazine declared Versteeg the idol of “every Harry
Potter-loving/Hackers-watching/anti-capitalist computer geek.” His critically acclaimed works mine our digital consciousness to create something new and unsettling in the form of paintings and sculptures. His works have been included in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Hirshhorn Museum and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, among many others. Versteeg is represented by bitforms gallery.


Arsnl Art is the exclusive digital platform for the Artist Rights Society. Founded in 2022 with the release of Frank Stella’s Geometries, Arsnl’s aim is to empower artists through use of emerging technologies, with a focus on the protection and promotion of intellectual property, licensing, and the production of masterful digital art.

Artists Rights Society

Artists Rights Society (ARS) is the preeminent copyright, licensing, and monitoring organization for visual artists in the United States. Founded in 1987, ARS harnesses their 35 years of experience and 122,000 strong global collective to create exciting artist projects and collaborations. The organization continually lobbies state and federal legislatures for stronger and more effective artists’ rights laws, including the ART Act, which would mandate resale royalties for visual artists, and the Artist-Museum Partnership Act, which would enable creators to take a fair market deduction for works donated to museums and other public institutions.
