Levi Van Veluw

In his series Landscapes (the first 4 images), Levi van Veluw de-contextualizes various landscapes, digitally compositing them onto photographs of himself. In Material Transfers (the last 3 images), he does the same thing using random materials and without any digital manipulation. Interesting work.

  • Wow! Awesome!

  • This is amazing! Transforming oneself to reflect an ecosystem? Pure genius.

  • this is some incredible stuff here,
    the last three, and notably the first of the last three really grabbed me.

    I think the third and fourth are neat; ‘tamed’ rural land vs. unfarmed rural land.

    This would have been fiddly, but I think the rocks/pebbles one would look cool if you had a faucet off-camera above your head, and the water in a few rivulets/streams through rocks, over skin, creating streambeds

    I think one that shows ‘manicuring landscape’ would be interesting, like how obsessively we control some properties

    Also might be interesting to have one that shows development – part of the head really untamed wilderness, and part of the head with houses stuck on

    The first one reminds me of the tree characters in The Hobbit

  • yea the Ents!

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!
