Josh Hite

Josh Hite works with video, animation, sound, and photography, often creating reorganized archives of particular spaces or behaviours, either through his own recordings or by appropriating content through sites like YouTube. Leaning more on an ethnography that acknowledges content as a driving force, his practice considers tactics for documentation as a determinant of eventual form, rather than using art historical or cultural references as structural assistants. Projects tend to query relationships between an experience and its location, the power dynamics at play, and the ways in which transitions and sequencing propel us through time.
