Fingerprints Studio

Fingerprints Studio partners with artists to deliver innovative NFT projects and experiences that explore the creative possibilities of blockchain technology. We commission artworks and operate alongside artists to see these projects through from inception to completion.


In doing so, the DAO aims to expand the audience of this exciting new field of artistic practice, offering a gallery-like support system for the artists we collect and launch projects with.

Previous Drops

An experiment in composability, Avid Lines uses instructions from Autoglyphs along with a set of non-deterministic characteristics assigned at time of mint to create the 500 works in the collection.
Consisting of lines spread around the canvas, the project is an ode to shapes derived from round-ended lines and complexity from chaos, also drawing inspiration from microscopic nature and movement.

Launch date: 2021-07-20

Collection size: 500 pcs

Consisting of a plant displayed prominently on a metal sculpture, Seed Capital works as a technologically-augmented organic system which engages in social and financial contracts with its environment.
The plant’s living conditions are measured at predetermined intervals. If the sensor readings fall within the intended range, the system mints an NFT on chain (which are placed for sale at time of mint), containing the data packages’ values.
As a game-theoretical hedge, a portion of the proceeds are stored in the contract and can be withdrawn by the exhibiting institution, as incentive to ensure proper care of the plant.

Tracing its lineage to Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawings and Larva Labs’ Autoglyphs, Within/Without further decouples the artist’s instructions from the visual output.
The collection uses newly generated Autoglyph instructions as an underlying structure to generate Javascript/GLSL instructions which generate artwork.
Within/Without captures the duality of soft paintings and geometric digital art, intentionally preserving the artifacts of striking this balance.

An on-chain derivative of Nouns, Fast Food Nouns is a quick-service project allowing for users to swap out the clothing on their Fast Food Nouns, a novel mechanism at the time of release.

A blockchain-native expression of John F. Simon’s seminal web-based software artwork (first released in 1997), Every Icon explores every possible combination of black and white squares in a 32x32 grid, discovering a near-infinite number of images on the way.
The duration of a journey through the icon space exceeds human imagination. While the first row of squares takes three months to complete on an average browser, the second row takes 500,000,000 years.

Created by DAO member Gremplin with a small bit of help from his friends, The Jims is a collection of 2,048 small amphibious Jim Simons (the greatest investor of all time).
The project is CC0 and in the public domain — so use Jims in any way you want.
