Hot off his recent appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last week, NFT lord Beeple has added pop singer Madonna to his small list of collaborators. Titled Mother of Creation, the NFT is made up of three videos that depict a digital avatar of the ‘Material Girl’ singer giving birth to technology, flora and fauna in a range of settings, ranging from a hospital bed to a forest floor. Bringing each video together is a narration of the singer reciting original poetry as well as that by acclaimed poet Rumi.
It’s without a doubt a very unexpected collab between the pair, with Madonna’s only foray into the digital artwork space consisting of a Bored Ape purchase earlier this year and Beeple himself confessing, ““I don’t do many collaborations. This is probably the only one I will do for a very long time.” However, its all for a good cause, with all proceeds being donated to three women and children-focused non-profits.
