THE MARTIAN WORD FOR WORLD IS MOTHER
Alice Bucknell

The London-based artist merges speculative fiction, 3D worldbuilding, artificial intelligence, and critiquing contemporary architectural proposals for the habitation of Mars, in this exploration of three Martian worlds with very different understandings of the Red Planet's future, and who gets to decide. Working with historical and contemporary science-fiction, Donna Haraway's theories on the nonhuman, and emergent space economies as its narrative backbone, the project underscores the limiting aspects of our language of space exploration that does not pivot towards human settlement as the necessary default, while exploring the political, ecological, economic, technological, and linguistic parameters framing contemporary discussions of Mars.
