The artistic intersection of humans and artificial intelligence.

We are Dreamers.

8,000 Dreamers

Each Dreamer is the combination of traditional fine-art, machine learning, and collectibles.

Dreamers are all around us. When surrounded by darkness, Dreamers see the light.

Are you a Dreamer?

Why Dreamers?

Mirage Gallery is creating a web3 gallery that caters to the main interests that we see in the space. 

At Mirage Gallery we currently have

When we started seeing PFP projects take off, we did not yet feel able to create a collection on a large scale that represented the gallery as a whole.

PFPs were the one style of art we had not yet explored, and we feel it was the missing piece to round out the full Mirage Gallery collection.

The
Dreamers project has been over 6 months in the making, and will be a large stepping stone in growing the Mirage Gallery community.

 

Airdrops

We are excited to be able to give back to the amazing Mirage Gallery community.

All MG Members will get 1 Dreamer airdropped to them.

MG Curated holders with 5+ artworks will receive 1 Dreamer and holders with 15+ artworks will receive 2 Dreamers.

Alejandro & Taylor holders with 2+ artworks will receive 1 Dreamer, and holders with 5+ will receive 2 Dreamers.

Crypto Native holders with 5+ artworks will receive 1 Dreamer, and holders with 15+ artworks will receive 2 Dreamers.

Presale

We want to give presale access to as many of you all as possible.

MG Members get automatic presale access (no signup required).

Holders of other MG projects get guaranteed presale access through Premint.

We'll be announcing partnerships with other communities as well to expand the presale group!

We'll also be opening up some public Premint pages in the future to give new individuals access to the presale!

Sentient Claims

MG Sentient Members will get 3 Dreamers reserved for them that can be claimed at any point in time (even if the drop is sold out / minting locked)

 

 

The Process

Step 1: Base Layers

Traditional artist, @wheatatreat, creates a large set of individual faces and backgrounds.

Step 2: Dataset

Large dataset is created by scrambling up all of the faces and backgrounds and adding variations.

Step 3: Training

Train AI models (GANs) on the dataset created in step 2.

Step 4: (lots of) Image Processing

The models output lots of images that were visually similar to one another. This step compares all and removes similar images.

Step 5: Traits

After hand labelling some of the outputs, a convolutional neural network was trained to learn how to assign traits to the rest of the images.

We also used a pre-trained CLIP model in order to assign some additional traits.

Minting Phases

Part of what makes NFTs special is that due to secondary sale royalties, creators are able to have a low mint price while still having the potential to be rewarded in the long term.

We don't believe in high primary mint costs for large-scale projects. 

Minting opens on August 22nd and closes on September 5th.

Remember

Creating a large scale AI project that has variety, interesting traits, and appealing looks while also including a human artist into the original training dataset is challenging.

We've done our best but it's important to remember that the Dreamers and their AI assigned traits aren't perfect.
