Hite's process begins with the overlooked. The work's strong representational imagery paired with whimsical motifs coaxes the audience to produce their own transcription enabling the viewer to engage in escapism. Hite emulates objects and vistas that resemble his surroundings creating a immersive experience, the unique effect is due to the work’s innate ability to imbibe historical context paired with a distinct human connection.
