Hungarian, b. 1974   —   Mónika Sziládi uses lens-based photography and digital photomontage as a tool to observe and digest the effects of technology on human behavior. Her work explores how wireless technology affect us as social beings by altering our physical and virtual interactions, and how the ease of picture taking and sharing redefined our relationship to images, including those of ourselves. Sziládi was born and raised in Budapest, Hungary and lives in New York. She holds a MFA in Photography from Yale and a Maitrise in Art History and Archaeology from Sorbonne, Paris.
