Not only does Makino Takashi, international award-winning director (and winner of the Tiger Award in Rotterdam 2012) produce films; he produces ecstatic excesses. Together with musicians such as Jim O'Rourke or Inconsolable Ghost, Takashi mostly works in great compositional arches, leading his images towards a state of liquefaction by means of countless layerings and overflowing multiple exposures. The physical surface of the screen thereby almost disappears, as eyes and ears experience a "ground zero of perception". In his early work EVE images of barbed wire and bubbles slowly turn fluid, while in Generator aerial shots of Tokyo can still be divined. With Ghost of OT301 the essential uncertainty characteristic of Makino's current work makes itself felt: one cannot stop wondering whether this really is what one is seeing – and cannot stop wanting to see.
