These artworks are based on a series of baroque paintings of the passion of the Saint Sebastian.  After premilimary adjustments and cutting, the artist has inputted the works into an artificial intelligence algorithm. The program looks for similarities in forms, colours, textures to generate its own version of the Passion of St Sebastian. The program however, cannot discover the feelings in the pictures, making the suffering saint into pure digital painting, with all passion erased. For the computer, the passions of the saint is simply unimaginable.
