Biography from the Archives of askART
An artist who integrates film, music video, documentary and commercials in video installations, Doug Aitken won the international prize at the 48th Venice Biennale for his work, "Electric Earth". A music video, it is the "story of one man left totally and irrevocably alone in an automated world of machines." The subject travels through barren industrial and urban sprawl landscapes that, deprived of human contact, cause him to break into twitching, jerky dance-like movements that mimic mechanical devices of the landscape he is experiencing.
