Alice Bucknell (b. 1993) lives and works in London. She studied anthropology and visual art at the University of Chicago and contemporary art practice at the Royal College of Art in London. She works with tools and media such as sculpture, photography, video, 3D worlds and text. In addition to her artistic practice, she regularly publishes in magazines such as Flash Art, Frieze and Elephant Magazine.
Her work addresses the social, cultural and ecological impacts of technologies like AI. How do they change our image of humanity, social hierarchies, our living conditions and our planet? Inspired by feminist science fiction authors such as Octavia E. Butler and Ursula K. Le Guin, Alice Bucknell is on a quest for alternative futures for our world.
In her residency at RIXC, Centre for New Media Culture in Riga, Alice Bucknell's research focuses on the intersection of AI and ecology, for instance in the field of renewable energy, new methods in agro-ecology and the creation of high biodiversity ecosystems. Here, too, she pursues her speculative approach to imagining possible shared worlds.
