Macintosh Labs

Visual experiments by emiliogomariz combines rainbow gradients with the visual mechanics of the Mac OSX desktop interface:

Macintosh Lab mostly plays with animated concepts working with the dynamic features from the own operative system, but there are also few static series made of screenshots where a specific moment on the desktop is captured to be documented as a photograph.

Operative systems and graphic user interfaces are designed to mimic the same organizing methods and items (desktop, folder, document, file..) we use irl, so when working on the computer desktop the feeling is pretty physical while dragging and placing items, as it’s for working composing  different elements into the space as well as setting up the start of an animated performance, the best example for this digital and physical relationship could be External/Internal http://emiliogomariz.net/macintoshlab/externalinternal/ where the digital icons are organized as real physical objects.

Vertical Desktops also plays with a static concept, consisting on blocking the folders while they are minimized to the dock, this process has been done for single folders as well as for a bunch of folders that were going down, right or left on the way to the dock, so they all are stopped at once in the middle of that sensual and organic movements provided by the Genie Effect. In order to get a major chaotic abstraction into the desktop, the folders have been blocked while going to different directions, which is where the dock was placed at the time of minimizing that same folder.

Quite why TripMode’s features aren’t baked into every OS remains a mystery. Until they are, this looks to be an essential bit of kit for anyone who tethers their Mac to a ‘phone.
