About Pete Ashton

My name is Pete Ashton.

I’m a multidisciplinary multimedia artist creating transformative site-specific work, online and offline. My work uses media technologies to explore how we perceive and understand the world around us, from camera obscura lens art to algorithmic image manipulation. I live and work in Birmingham in the North West of Europe with my wife and a pack of rabbits.

The previous paragraph can serve as an artist biography should you need one from me.

I have two CVs: One for my Artworks, one for my freelance work as an Artist Practitioner.

An advocate of peer and self-learning, I use art to look at traditionally academic subjects in new ways, seeing it as a form of applied philosophical enquiry.

I occasionally blog.
