 alignDRAW

alignDRAW (2015). The first text-to-image artwork.

By early 2015, neural networks had mastered the art of 'image-to-text' and could create natural language captions for images. Flipping this process, and turning text into image, was a much more complex challenge solved by 19-year old prodigy Elman Mansimov's alignDRAW model.

DAILY, in partnership with Fellowship, is pleased to present a special release of fully on-chain* NFTs of this historical artwork, containing all the original 32x32 pixel images.

“These images represent the birth of text prompt AI generated imagery.” - Darius Himes, Christie’s

“alignDRAW images can be compared to the first fixed photographs taken by Niépce in 1826-1827.” - Dr Lev Manovich

*We created an architecture that allowed for the progressive on-chain storage of data and images, through a phased roll-out during periods of lower gas prices.

UPDATE: as of Mon 20th May 2024 alignDRAW is fully on-chain.
