Emilio Gomariz is opening his world of digital rainbows moving in circles, up and down and side to side on the screen of his Macintosh desktop. An animated choreography of colored gradients pops out on the interface. It is the result of a scrupulous folder sorting and positioning on the screen. Each animation is captured and transmitted on You Tube; revealing how the tricks operate.
The Macintosh Lab Series is Comprised of four digital animations, Opening Folders, Nyan Folder, Deep Gradiant and Spinning Beach Folders. They all operate the same way. The folders are selected with cmd (A) or by dragging the cursor.
The placement of the folders is key as it will determine the order of appearance of the windows. Therefore they are located on the corners, in the middle; aligned vertically or horizontally. A simple action such as selecting and opening files becomes for Emilio Gomariz an accumulation of astonishing complex visuals.
Even in his previous work inspired by a bug from the OS X, the windows froze when opening a folder, shows that manipulating an error or a simple task can produce an eye catching concept. As the color hue of the gradient changes, the image generates kaleidoscopic frames, tunnels, and flow.
