Makris's MFA thesis focused on the history of the blue colour and its connections to  melancholy, as well as to the transformation and representation of “found” objects, such as motifs, porcelains, bones (mainly sacrum), and stones. His interpretation of these linkages composes a new autonomous artifact / palimpsest. Moreover, in his artistic expression, photography, mainly through the use of mobile camera, works as a medium and as an extension of his hand. The restraints of the mobile function, the limited quality of camera lens, and the noise (grain), are elements of the photographic procedure and outcome.
