Sacred Icons is a series of digital works generated by a neural network trained on a dataset composed of hundreds of images of medieval, renaissance, and modern sacred art. The learning is based purely on visual features such as shapes, colors, and textures. The images in the Sacred Icons series are generated by an algorithm that combines these features in new and original ways, creating contemporary sacred icons. The results show how automatic learning can generate images that are both suggestive and evocative, in which some religious figures are clearly recognizable. AI Generated is a series of digital artworks generated following the automatic learning of algorithms based on artificial intelligence. The results show patterns, shapes, colors and styles identified by the algorithm in selected works of art used for training the machine. These experiments aim to study and highlight features of image that emerge uniquely through visual processes. The aim is to investigate concepts such as style, sign, form, color and other attributes of art that are beyond meaning or semantics but that affect it in many ways often unseen and unexpected.
