Co-creating an NFT collection with Sophia the Robot


I teamed up with Hanson Robotics’ Sophia the Robot to create an NFT collection in support of The Women’s Foundation Hong Kong. The collection melds my digital art style with Robot Sophia’s physical art style and explores Hong Kong history, technology, and gender empowerment. The collection is slated to drop later this year.



I'm usually an NFT sceptic and deliberately have held off on dropping my own collection because of the environmental impact of proof-of-work blockchain networks, but I decided to pursue this project because of its goals to create a more gender-inclusive community within the NFT, crypto, and web3 space; raise money in support of TWFHK's initiatives that directly support Hong Kong women; and demystify the NFT space for female and non-binary digital art creators, collectors, and aficionados.


To create the artworks within the collection, I started by brainstorming ideas and sending mock-ups to Sophia the Robot to choose from. Once we both settled on a mock-up we liked, Robot Sophia got to work layering her own artistic interpretation over my digital files.


The NFT collection doesn't have an official drop date, but is slated to come out in 2022.
