Twittering

I finally setup a Twitterfeed so now you can get notified of any Booooooom updates via Twitter! This is the internet equivalent of us becoming best friends! If you want to Tweet about Booooooom that would be awesome!

  • Got Booooom! in my facebook, in my reader and now on twitter, great! now Im totally boomfidelized.

    Thanks Jeff, here you’ve a spaniard follower.

  • cheers Curro! much love to Spain!

  • what is twitter, looks like facebook.

  • its essentially a stock ticker for single sentence updates from people/sites that you’re interested in. you can set it up so it goes straight to your phone, etc. handy for getting the latest news as quick as possible depending on who you choose to follow.

  • Bingo

    I really like following celebbs like paris hilton, roger ebert, and matt damon.

  • I equate it (Twitter) to a big party, but everyone’s silent, and every once in a while someone yells something interesting.

  • hahah ^ that’s a much better description

  • I didn’t know what it was until I started using it … I mean, I knew what it was, but it was hard to understand why.

    Now I know.

    🙂

  • Welcome to the party! 🙂

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!
