Emilio Gomariz uses OS X to create abstract animations. With a combination of applications, window animations, keyboard controls, and QuickTime, he assembled a mesmerizing collection of digital art that mixes graphics and music for a unique result. For the “alternate gradients” animation, he wrote:
The “Spectrum” screen saver from Mac OS X is alternated by the use of five Quicktime video players which also reproduce the own screen saver in different times and sizes, following a decreasing and centered composition.
In the “ctrl tab torus” animation, on the other hand, he used the CTRL+Tab action of Photoshop to create a rotating spiral of windows with different colors. Or, again, in “Open_Close.txt”, he used dozens of open items with colored backgrounds to create a virtual accordion for the standard open/close animations of OS X.
The whole collection of videos shows great creativity and willingness to experiment with the digital graphics of our computers. Check it out here. [TUAW via Today and Tomorrow]
It’s hard not to be inspired from others in the community who started with virtually no experience, and end up building really great utilities for the iPad. Roger Wong and his code partner David Wheeler took arms in 2010 to build an iPad app worthy of being featured as an “App of the Week” on the App Store. The year long development process from HTML junkie to a decorated iPad developer has ended with the fruition of DesignScene, the graphic designer’s browser for finding inspiration on the social web. Some would believe this is a new clone of Flipboard, but I’ll be quick to dismiss that having read Roger’s motivational backstory. Hard work pays off, and again I’m reminded of Mike Rundle’s “be curious” recommendation to success.
DesignScene is very cool, and I’ve been personally looking for something that was purely focused on art and discovering new content. Featuring over thirty sites, DesignScene pulls in regularly updated feeds to provide you with the freshest content from around the web.
Tapbots is no stranger to getting their work copied, stolen, and everything else in that category, but where does one draw the line?
This is where the line needs to be drawn. Retweet the source link if you believe in the hard work of great, skilled and passionate designers and developers who see their work abruptly copied by God knows what “iOS development studio” every single day.
Shame on mRemedy, and all those who tolerate and support this kind of “works”.
