Judit Flóra Schuller (1991) is a visual artist currently based in Budapest. She obtained her Master of Arts degree from Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture, Helsinki (FI) in 2018. Her main interest is based on the topic of inherited (traumatic) remembrance and its effects on our personal and collective remembrance and identity. She often uses her own family heritage as a starting point, and by doing so she aims to approach a collective reconciliation with the unprocessed narratives of the past through personal, familial elements and micro-histories. Currently she is a doctoral candidate at the Contemporary Art department at Aalto University School of Arts, Design and Architecture.

In her other works (Light Observation), she engages the question of visual perception through analogue photographic experiments, by focusing on the observation of sunsets, re-created skyscapes and artificial light sources.
