is an interactive artwork created using P5.js on hicetnunc. It generates a piece with parameters based on the address of the collector's Tezos wallet. The art is a hexagon consisting of 721 hexes and is unique for each user.

A total of 721 copies of Memory Cell have been created. Each copy will be given to the new owner personally by the creator. Copies are distributed as follows:

  • in generative art communities
  • among collectors of hicetnunc
  • on Twitter
  • on Reddit at r/tezos

One owner can have only one copy.

After the token is transferred to the owners, they will be able to see the unique art in their collection on hicetnunc, and their card will be created on memory-cell.com with their personal art and the owner's profile from

After all the tokens have been distributed, a new large hexagonal art will be created from the 721 unique Memory Cells created in this project.

After the end of the project, three wallets will be selected at random and I will send their owners their artwork printed on canvas 16x16 inches.

All news about the project will be published on Twitter

Technical details:

NFT was created on the hicetnunc platform thanks to the ability to create interactive NFTs. It is html+js using the P5.js library.

NFTs created on hicetnunc are stored on cloudflare-ipfs and data about the wallet of the art viewer is passed through query params:
?viewer=tzWalletAddress.

Memory Cell NFT can generate an infinite number of images based on address, but only 721 images based on the wallets of NFT owners are their official identifiers. The project will include images generated for the first collectors. They will be placed on the main page. The collector page will contain a link directly to the NFT which generates the image for the current owner

Just get yourself a Tezos wallet (Temple, Spire, Galleon, or Kukai) and refer to the “How can I get my copy of the Memory Cell NFT” section of this FAQ

Why 721?

This is сentered hexagonal number. Some people think 721 means "Love You". The 7 represents the total number of letters in the term. The 2 represents the number of words, and the 1 tells us that the term has one meaning. For me, it's just an important number in my life

Project purpose

This project aims to raise awareness about the potential for good and bad in terms of crypto art on the blockchain.

Generative art on the blockchain can be a force of good when created in a climate-positive way on the Tezos blockchain, and distributed independently on sites like hicetnunc.

The world of Crypto Art and NFT’s are ablaze with media attention, mostly focused on large sales which are prompting greedy “flippers” to jump in and try to make quick money. Memory Cell is about remembering our priorities and not be absorbed by the mania of the day.

A few owners of huge crypto capitals are creating markets where the masses overspend while trying to make a quick buck by minting memes or primitive pictures. In fact, it’s mostly increasing the value of Ethereum and the capital of its owners. This is a scheme where 1% of the rich will make more money, and the other 99% will be their sponsors. Just like on Walls Street… the house always wins. It’s important to remember to do your research and buy quality art that you like, even if it is for an investment.

Memory Cell was created to help everyone remember to move NFT in the right direction :)

Stay aware of our climate crisis. Value art for the work itself, not just its uniqueness. Learn about the artists from their social media and support the ones you care about.
