Supermodel Kate Moss auctions off three videos of herself to raise money for a mental health charity. The clips are titled “Sleep with Kate”, “Walk with Kate”, and “Drive with Kate”, and will be sold to the highest bidder.
Kate Moss is raising money for Gurls Talk, a mental health charity. Moss is auctioning off the clips with buyers bidding in cryptocurrencies. The “Sleep with Kate” video is attracting bids up to 11,000 pounds.
Moss described time as “the thing that there is never enough of” and added that she was “intrigued by who will want to own a moment of mine”.
“I was also drawn to the idea that this ownership can be used to help others in need hopefully gain more of it. I look forward to seeing this experiment through,” said Moss.
The winners of the bids for each video will also receive an audio certification which is recorded by Moss. Moss will audibly acknowledge the winning bidder. The Kate Moss Agency will announce the winning bidder via social media post.
The videos were recorded by an anonymous collective known as Moments in Time Collective. The collective said that “We had to be more respectful as this is all about trust to really capture the real moment—normally Kate models as a character, but this is truly Kate Moss.”
Gurls Talk is a charity founded by model Adwoa Aboah that provides resources and a safe space for women to discuss their mental health.
The videos are being sold as a nonfungible token (NFT), a digital asset that represents real-world objects that can be bought and sold online. They have become a popular way to buy and sell digital artwork. Kate Moss’s videos are only available for 24 hours on Foundation, an NFT marketplace.
“Disaster Girl” meme person Zoë Roth and “Overly Attached Girlfriend” Laina Morris also sold their photos as an NFT and gained ownership of the image. Their photos were sold for around 500,000 dollars 411,000 dollars respectively.
