Josh Hite’s video and photo work is primarily concerned with human movement through local spaces. He is inspired by the potential for the creation of subjective pathways and the myriad results that occur when movers decidedly confront obstacles. Recent work focuses on the technological alteration of action and memory relative to the uploading of backyard behavior onto YouTube. He has collaborated on site-specific projects, dance and sound performances, and work in public space. Josh has a BA in Philosophy, an MFA in Visual Art and teaches photography and video at Emily Carr University of Art + Design and Arts Umbrella in Vancouver.
Part of a series of videos focused on the alteration of action and memory in backyard behavior, Mates, Extras, Trophies and Trespassers (2011) uses footage uploaded by hunters to Youtube from their motion sensor scouting cameras.
