Pekka Niittyvirta’s (b. 1974, Helsinki) work is often dealing with consequences of human actions, weather they are related with the society, technology, environment or the financial market. He uses photography and video as a material in various ways to depict a situation or phenomena.
Niittyvirta’s works do not necessarily rely on traditional imaging processes alone. Incorporating various digital, biological and chemical processes, they address such issues as the problems of technology and information society. Niittyvirta has exhibited his work since 1999 in Finland and internationally in both solo and group shows.
