This is a simple work that focuses on design with a nice, fairly uncommon background color that complements the design well. The work's vertical lines help to emphasize the power of the spell being performed.
Gradient in Stages is a work that is unapologetically genuine in a way that almost no other work in this entire gallery can be, and which manages to be wholly unique in its compositional design. Very little of this work was manufactured after the fact - what you see is almost exactly what the monitor looked like before I took the photograph, and it remains, in my opinion, the most incredible monitor I have ever found.
This work is especially impressive for its flaky, almost pastel-gradient style of shading, and an oddly digital texture that manifests itself more and more closer to the center of the image. These features underscore an incredible transition from a dark red to a deep blue, step by step, in an elegant way.
This work uses Moire to its fullest extent. A neon pulse comes from one edge of the image, breaking up and causing cracks in some structure. The pulse's light illuminates the colors and textures of the structure, displaying rough bits of color. This is one of the most fascinating works in MOMA's galleries, with a lot of depth and an inventive and fantastic image. There is a lot to ponder here.
A calming work, representative of an entire class of the works in this gallery. The sunset motif is heavily visible in the background's orange-red color scheme, with the setting sun reflected in the lighter areas of the background. The feeling rolls across the smooth yet turbulent foreground from light into shadow, representing the shift from day into night.
