TWF Debuts its First Ever NFT Collection for Gender Equality

TWF is thrilled to announce our first ever NFT project, created in collaboration with Hanson Robotics’ AI Robot Sophia, the world’s first robot citizen and the first robot Innovation Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme, and Hong Kong artist Sophia Hotung. The NFT project, “Future Values: Imagining Digital Gender Equality”, debuts at Digital Art Fair Xperience beginning today, October 20.

The collection aims to encourage greater diversity and inclusivity within the tech and crypto industries, as well as promote greater gender equality through technology. Proceeds from the NFT sales will fund our programmes, research and advocacy.

The artwork, consisting of three NFTs, is a successful collaboration between artificial intelligence and humans. “$OPH” was first designed by illustrator Sophia Hotung, AI Robot Sophia then applied a combination of algorithms, neural networks, and symbolic AI to create the final product. What these two artists share in common is not just their first name “Sophia”, but also their common identity as feminists and their desire to drive awareness on gender inequality, and champion for a gender-equal future through this initiative.

The NFT design combines Sophia Hotung’s original artwork collection, “Stamp Beauty”, and then added with an abstract touch by AI Robot Sophia. “$OPH” is modelled after the $2 Hong Kong coin with its distinctive ridged edges, reinforcing the local roots of AI Robot Sophia and Sophia Hotung. Released in collaboration with Sotheby's and Digital Art Fair, “$OPH” will be exclusively auctioned at Sotheby’s from October 20 - November 1.

“$OPH” will be dropped as part of a collection, which includes:

Stamp of Approval - Animated video “Stamp of Approval” overviews the creative process in this visionary collaboration between artificial intelligence and humans. “Stamp of Approval” will be auctioned as a one-of-one NFT.

Stamp Beauty - The “Stamp Beauty” colourways collection features Sophia the Robot and the iconic Hong Kong skyline, and forms the foundation for the collaboration. “Stamp Beauty” is available in five colours – Lilac, Mustard, Teal, Vermillion, and the exclusive collectors' piece in Charcoal.

“Stamp of Approval” will be auctioned and “Stamp Beauty” will be available for purchase in conjunction with Digital Art Fair. Follow us on Instagram, Facebook and LinkedIn for the latest updates on when it goes live. We hope this collaboration will inspire the next generation of women to challenge gender stereotypes, gain tech skills and become innovators at the nexus of technology and art to drive equality.

Check out the Collection and come visit our exhibition at the Digital Art Fair Xperience October 22 - November 6 – see you there!
