ffffinally!

I ffffinally got myself an invite to ffffound! Hooray. For whatever reason it is next to impossible to get an invite to join the site.

Anyways, I was poking around the site and came across these great images used to promote ffffound’s in-house t-shirts. What do you do when you can’t get a decent looking model for your photoshoot? You force Paris Hilton and Kate Moss to model your gear by ripping up the photos and sticking them together! Brilliant.

And then I remembered I had seen something similar to this recently. Evan over at Curse of the Multiples did something similar in a lookbook for a company called Industry. A little different, and pretty cool as well:

So now you have two options for shooting a lookbook with ugly models. I want to clarify that I’m not saying these models were definitely ugly, I’m just saying you have options. If you happen to be one of the models whose pretty face has been obscured and you want to prove just how beautiful you are, feel free to email me a photo of yourself along with your phone number.

  • haha nice work.
    fffoound is quite amazing, lots of good everyday inspiration.

  • Man, I’ve yet to get my hands on an invite!

  • sAkSeNaKeL

    Hahah…Hate to be one of those models. What’s the point of modeling all these clothes if no one can see you face.

    Oh yeah, the extravagant lifestyle and easy money. I stand corrected.

  • krissy if i had an invite to give you i would.

    for anyone that’s looking for one, here’s how i got mine:

    http://www.qbn.com/topics/559132/

    if you post in there you have a good chance of getting one, there’s a guy organizing it so you get one and he takes your invite and passes it on to the next person in line for one (which is why i don’t have an invite to give)

  • Addict to FFFFound.

  • how long did it take for you to get an invite? is it an exclusive club kinda thing.

    i’ve been checking out weheartit. i’ll be signing up soon. you don’t need an invite 🙂 it’s an awesome site.

  • Rob

    photoshopped.

  • yea i signed up at weheartit as well! ffffound is the same just more people view it – i was getting a lot of hits from it and tried to dig up an invite for awhile. but if you follow that qbn link i posted i was lucky and got an invite the same day i posted in the thread

  • Courtney

Experimental Artist Petros Vrellis Creates Detailed Portraits With A Single Thread

 

Born in Greece, with a background in Electrical Engineering as well as Art Science, artist Petros Vrellis has a passion for creating interactive installations that blend art and technology. His latest project is a mesmerizing re-imagining of traditional handicraft.

Using a 28″ aluminum-rimmed loom, Petros runs a single thread from one anchor peg to another to create just the right density and darkening at precise intersections. The end result is a detailed image that emerges from 3000 – 4000 continuous loops (or 1-2 kilometers of thread)!

While Petros is following a set pattern developed from a computer-generated algorithm, as you can see in the time-lapsed video above, the step-by-step process is all done by hand. We had the chance to speak with Petros about his experimental process and why hand-made work still has a place in the digital age. Check out the full interview below!
