Ways of Worlding: Building more-than-human worlds
Artist and writer Alice Bucknell joins NFTuesdayLA to speak about her interdisciplinary worldbuilding practice, which explores interconnections of architecture, ecology, language, magic, and non-human and machine intelligence. Working primarily with game engines and speculative fiction narratives, Bucknell cultivates more-than-human worlds that look toward the near future and deep past in order to graft onto somewhere beyond the binary of utopia and dystopia. Recently, Bucknell was profiled in CURA Magazine’s inaugural Generational Issue as one of 40 artists shaping the landscape of the present and the future in contemporary art.
A special collection of stable diffusion hallucinations, collectively titled NEXT LA, will be released as NFTs to support the production of Bucknell’s newest project, The Alluvials.

Unsigned DTLA Billboard Showcase
In collaboration with Vellum LA and Standard Vision, NFTuesdayLA is proud to present the first public exhibition of Unsigned in the United States by Operator and Anika Meier. Unsigned is a conceptual collaborative action that directly responds to a finding by Dr. Helen Gorrill, researcher and author of Women Can’t Paint, that the addition of a signature by a woman on an artwork devalues it to the extent that “female artists are more likely to leave their work unsigned.” Unsigned is a collection of “100 signatures from women and non-binary artists created to reverse the current negative value of the signatures through their transformation into artworks themselves.” The entire collection of signatures will be featured on the large scale digital facade at the Courtyard Marriott LA Live in DTLA for a two week showcase until the end of 2022.
