  • Akudeyn

    i like it, creative idea

    smh <3

  • Wow these are really sweet. I really like the second to last one……well I really like all of them actually.

  • Brilliant idea, the shots are really lovely

    a friend wanted to make a film with this premise of transparency years ago… he should have, it all looks so beautiful

  • awesomenesss

  • Mike

    Killer!

  • how exactly is this done?

    • im pretty sure its two photos taken from the same spot (tripod) one with the figure, one without. the photos laid on top of one another, the shape is removed from the shot with the figure to reveal the empty space of the second photo. simple and effective

  • Ilir Sopa

    Guess we are, at last, able to see your true colors, and that’s why I love you, so don’t be afraid to let them show! Peace!

  • @JEFFHAMADA and @HANNA … we’ve been debating it’s method as a “mirror trick” with the subject holding a mirror and a mirror set up at just the right angle facing the subject near the photographer

    • i can see how it might look like that but it’s not – its definitely the landscape showing behind the subject

      • i agree. i was on the other side of the “mirror trick” debate. either way… it’s extra cool, love it!

      The easiest way to do this would to be to take a picture without the girl first the one with her with the black cardboard. then to photo shop the background in with any shape you like. The black cardboard would make it easy to because it very distinguishable from the actual background. A nice simple idea that has made some very nice photos. Although maybe they did it a different way, I am not by any means an expert on these matters.

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!
