Andreas Rutkauskas is a visual artist. His projects focus on landscapes that have been affected by technology.

This may refer to physical alteration of a landscape or the psychological effects of such changes.

Relying principally on photography, Rutkauskas incorporates other media such as video into his research in order to provide the viewer with a more holistic perspective.
