alignDRAW - the first text-to-image artwork from 2015.

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.

Fellowship is pleased to present a special release of both print editions and fully on-chain NFTs of this historical artwork, containing all the original images created in 2015.

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

"These images represent the birth of text prompt AI generated imagery."
Darius Himes, Christie's
