Following the transhumanism concepts of his past works, Japanese art director Kouhei Nakama is back with his latest video, Makin’ Moves. Departing from the aesthetics of DIFFUSION and CYCLE, the two other short videos of the series, Nakama wanted to make the latest installment more visually approachable. This decision comes from the fact that his past two videos had received decidedly mixed reactions; while most viewers were impressed by the stunning visuals, others found them to be rather disturbing. “I thought that the parts people found ‘shocking’ in those two videos might have hindered the message I originally wanted to convey,” Nakama explains.
日本艺术总监Kouhei Nakama曾在过去的作品中探讨超人类主义（transhumanism）的概念，现在，他又带来了最新的短片作品《Makin’ Moves》。同系列的前2部短片《DIFFUSION》和《CYCLE》在网上发布后，毁誉参半。有人认为它们视觉效果震撼，有人则觉得不适。而这次的全新短片一改前两部短片的美学风格，呈现了更轻快的风格。“我觉得在前两部短片中那些令观众‘震撼’的内容可能反而阻碍了我原本想要传达的信息。“Nakama解释说。
Nakama describes the subjects in this latest video as the “dance team of the future.” The humans (and one lone dog) in the video swirl and contort, with complete disregard for the laws of physics; pop and lock, splitting their anatomy in biologically impossible ways; and gyrate along to the rhythm, exploding into colorful fractals in sync with a hypnotic, pulsating track produced by BrokeForFree. Nakama tells us, “Please, don’t think too hard. Just enjoy the video!”
Nakama说最新短片的主题是“未来的舞蹈团队”。视频中的人（和一只孤独的狗）打破所有物理定律，不断旋转和扭曲；他们的身体在跳着机械舞的pop 和lock动作的同时，以超越生物学的方式不断分解；并跟着BrokeForFree迷幻、跃动的音乐节拍旋转、爆发出多彩的分形图案。Nakama 说：“不要想太多，好好享受这部短片就行！“
