Jess Lynch is a visual artist and experimental filmmaker based in Brooklyn, NY. Her time-based work emphasizes an unfolding, contemplative experience reflecting cycles of time, rhythms of life, abstractions, de- and re-constructions. Much of her film works evolve out of direct experimentation with materials and are informed by her interest in the ability of the moving image to affect states of consciousness.  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 has exhibited her work at numerous film festivals, galleries, and DIY venues.
