Flying Lotus / Essential Mix

I finally got around to listening to the Flying Lotus Essential Mix and it lives up to all the hype! This is experimental hip hop done right – a fantastic two-hour adventure. Flying Lotus hails from California and is signed to Warp (if you are familiar with Warp you will know what you’re in for). The mix fittingly starts off with Galaxy in Turiya by Alice Coltrane, wife of John Coltrane and Flying Lotus’ great aunt!

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!
