Image bookmarking top ten lists!

oobject is like ffffound (what’s with all the websites with repeated letters these days, haha sheesh), if ffffound were organized by a really anal person. Actually oobject is one of several “curation” sites that are becoming really popular. You suggest images, they curate and compile. 16 giant bucket excavators. 10 ski jumps. 12 ejector seats. 18 tiny projectors. 10 luxury trains. 20 classic 8mm cameras. The images below are from a list of craftsy weapons.

The description on the is the site is “like Billboard charts for Gadgets”, but I think they easily could have gone with “like ffffound, just more anal” – not sure why they didn’t…

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!
