Paula Lehtonen (1983–) is a media artist working with spatial video installations and electronic art. Her work explores the process of digitalisation while expressing a primal yearning for a return to nature. Her latest works have focused on the aesthetics of natural disasters and the way bats understand the world around them. Light and sound play a key role in her immersive creative approach. Her technique is informed and influenced by her experience of working as a VJ and video designer in clubs and the theatre. Lehtonen graduated from the Tampere University of Applied Sciences in 2018 with a Bachelor’s degree in Culture and Arts and was awarded a Master’s degree by the Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture (Media Lab) in 2013.
