Terveh! Kuibo dielot?

I am Mirya Nezvitskaya, a multidisciplinary designer and artist originally from Karelia, currently living in Helsinki, Finland.

My work is situated within visual design, user experience, studies of new media, anthropology and language. I am interested in understanding how new media technologies work and influence everyday life of individuals. My current research for Master of Arts thesis at Aalto University focuses on the possibilities of endangered languages preservation using new media technologies.

Being Karelian, my artistic practice emphasises on folklore, cultural preservation, mysticism, nature and sound. In my free time I enjoy getting lost in the forest picking wildflowers, riding my bright pink bicycle, singing in the Lauttasaari choir and being part of a music collective "Yölinnut", where I play different instruments, sing and sometimes even rap in Karelian.
