Jessica Wilson

Technology Residency

Jessica Wilson’s work draws on methods used for architectural renderings, medical animation, game design, cinematography, and visual effects, developing computer generated characters and places. The environments she builds are textured with images she takes from the physical, virtual, mental and emotional worlds that she inhabits. Her work calls into question the notion of the invisible and the immaterial, asking if it is possible to reconsider seemingly invisible forces and the physical effects they have on a body. During her residency at Pioneer Works, she will continue her current body of work, investigating biological systems relating to emotive expulsion, proposing the dissolution of inside and outside as the site of her images and animations.

Jessica Wilson (b.1991) lives and works in NYC. She is currently an MFA candidate at Bard College.
