Mauri Lehtonen (b. 1985) is a Finnish filmmaker and a new media artist. His works is imbued with styles ranging from abstract structuralism to experimental pop mutations. His latest video is titled UFO Trouble, as it was created by corrupting Super Nintendo ROM files before running them with emulator software. He describes it as "Rhythmical exposure to synaesthetic glitch sequences". This work was screened at Experiments In Cinema v11.4 (USA 2016), AnimateCOLOGNE 4 (India 2016) and at the College Art Association Conference (USA 2016).
