The rotating black and white pictures recall a time before special effects had been perfected. The performance artist needs neither stuntman nor computer to defy gravity and the powers of perception in this video. Based on the functioning of a mixer, Machacek does not try to hide the cinematographic »tricks«, while making the movement of the camera and the body in space the direct center of attention.
