My name is Pete Ashton.
I’m an artist based in Birmingham in the North West of Europe. My work centres on cameras as post-photographic data-capture devices with an interest in realising their output through mechanical/human gesture.
Throughout 2017 I will be producing Instructions For Humans, a new body of work culminating in a solo show in November.
I occasionally blog.
I’ve been a practicing artist since 2013 after four decades of slowly coming to the conclusion I might be an artist.
