Atsuhide Ito

Dr Atsuhide Ito
PhD, MA, BA (Hons), BA (Hons), FHEA

Senior Research Fellow


Through his practice of art, Atsuhide investigates how environmental data can be translated into affective experiences.

He studied Social Anthropology and Fine Art in his undergraduate degrees, and subsequently completed an MA in Social Anthropology, and obtained a PhD in Fine Art. His PhD thesis and project concerned non-places, aesthetics and landscape on the Tokaido Route (the major travel route along the Pacific Coast of Japan).

While his interests remain in transitory subjectivity, environmental aesthetics and ecological philosophy, Atsuhide has focused more on the nuclear Anthropocene and the politics of air (aeropolitics) in recent years.

Along with his practice of art, especially in painting, video and machines, Atsuhide has been developing a theory fiction as a way of situating personal experiences against the backdrop of the larger ecological crisis.
