Maija Luutonen

This photo by Maija Luttonen made me laugh. Maija is living and working in Helsinki and has a unique portfolio in that there is as much drawing as there is photography (I haven’t come across this combination too often). I particularlly like this little series of photos, Please let’s pretend.

  • These put a little smirk on your face for the creative blends of her faux designs juxtaposed with the natural element settings her pieces are derived from. Interestingly fun series of pieces.

  • I’ve seen these around on places like digg but i’ve never known who they’re by! very very cool. thanks for hooking me up with a name to put with the art bro!

  • Sinking Cities

    These are great. There was a project I remember seeing about a year ago using cameras embedded into clothing to project what is behind onto the surface the effect of being see through or invisible. These are equally witty – but more of the low tech DIY version. Good work.

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!
