Watch this robot carve one of Michelangelo's unfinished works

“Captives” is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures by London based visual artist Quayola. The series interprets Michelangelo’s unfinished series “Prigioni.” Mathematical functions allow computer-controlled robots to sculpt life-size unfinished sculptures using an industrial milling technique.
