Josh Hite works with video, animation, sound, and photography, often creating reorganized archives of particular spaces or behaviors, either through his own recordings or by appropriating content through sites like YouTube. His practice leans towards an ethnography that acknowledges content and tactics for documentation as determinants of eventual form, rather than relying on 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 can seamlessly propel us through time.
Josh has shown his work in North and South America, Asia, Europe, and Australia. He collaborates with Vancouver’s theatre and dance communities and is a member of Fight With a Stick Performance. Josh has a BA in Philosophy, a MFA in Visual Art and teaches with the University of British Columbia and Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
