AI-Generated Art Created in Space as Prelude To Celestium Global Art and STEM Project

A ground breaking data storage and edge processing tech demo aboard the International Space Station has paved the way for a new era in digital art

Award-winning artist Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm and her tech team at ARTificial Mind are advancing the next epoch of digital art with a first of its kind artificial intelligence (AI) and blockchain artwork created in space December 17th 2021.

The artwork – Celestium – is an AI and blockchain artwork to operate from space, as it orbits the Earth aboard NASA’s part of the International Space Station (ISS). The artwork is developed by artist Cecilie Waagner Falkenstrøm. The idea for the artwork was initiated by Falkenstrøm and Zibrandtsen. The technology for Celestium is developed by ARTificial Mind.

The artwork is part of a global STEAM initiative and a groundbreaking, immutable data storage, edge processing demonstration currently running aboard the International Space Station (ISS) and led by stealth start-up Lonestar, open-source leader Canonical, and leading space mission integrator Redwire Corporation, a leader in space infrastructure for the next generation space economy.

Thanks to Canonical’s Ubuntu Core, Celestium could run in a system with tight computing resources all while ensuring immutability and containment alongside its complex AI software compatibility. In addition to this, thanks to its minimal image size it was possible to use a satellite link with limited bandwidth in order to get this artwork into space.

Harnessing data from cosmic radiation experienced aboard the ISS orbiting Earth at 17,500 mph / 27,700 kmph, the AI algorithm is seeding and mining thousands of space images and space tokens to be distributed on a blockchain. Drawing upon images from NASA’s deep space photographs, the unique works of Astronaut Nicole Stott of the Space for Art Foundation, and Western artist Tamara King, each image is generated by the AI as one-of-a-kind and embedded as a non-fungible token (NFT). The artwork is pioneering an emerging genre at the intersection of art, space and technology.

Nonprofit partners including the Arch Mission Foundation and the Angiogenesis Foundation now have their immutable data stored successfully on the ISS as a result of this landmark collaboration.
