The Inhabitants is a video series Moore began in 2014. These works are made using unsecured web cameras that feature the lives of non-human animals in their environments. These recordings take place at sites of domesticity (the family home), scientific discovery (the laboratory), industrial production (the farm), and entertainment (the zoo). Each recording is done for 24 hours at 1 frame every 10 seconds and played back at 25 frames per second. Through this material he considers the place of the non-human animal both as subject and material in the history of photography, cinema, and camera-based surveillance. In viewing these fragments, one can witness aspects of life usually unseen and glimpse a disaster in their reflection. For The Inhabitants 2019/09/27 - 2019/09/28, He will project 250 of these recordings over a 24 hour period from Friday September 27th at 5pm to Saturday September 28th at 5pm.

Joseph Moore is an artist whose conceptually based practice utilizes a variety of techniques and media, from photography to network-based art. His recent work investigates the place of the non-human within the context of photographic history as well as labor, temporality, and surveillance. He has exhibited in venues such as Tel Aviv Museum of Art, Tel Aviv, Israel; Microscope Gallery, Brooklyn, NY; WORM, Rotterdam, The Netherlands; Outlet Fine Art, Brooklyn, NY; Arebyte, London, England; and in collections such as The Rose Goldsen Archive of New Media Art at Cornell.
