Bio

Jess Lynch is a visual artist and experimental filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. Much of her film works evolve out of direct experimentation with found materials and are non-narrative, visceral, painted, cut-up, deconstructed, and often silent. She is interested in the moving image as a medium for directly touching the unconscious mind and affecting states of consciousness by literally changing how we normally see things. Many finished works become raw material for live video mixing in collaboration with musicians and other artists.

Jess holds a BFA from the Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art and Design and has exhibited her work at numerous film festivals, galleries, and DIY venues.
