Born in Japan, Miyuki Kasahara graduated with an MA from the Royal College of Art and is based in London. Her work is research driven and addresses the impact of humans on the ecosystem. How we can find ways to reconnect with a losing grasp of the natural world and stop poisoning it and ourselves. She examines in her work the environmental factors affecting global issues, including that arising from politics and societal change. Warfare and weaponry appear as an ongoing theme through her work, as she believes it is one of the greatest human catastrophes to the natural environment. The outcomes from her research have included drawing, film, installation, interactive performance, sculpture, or a combination of those.
