    Bwaaaaaaah the first one is like holy epic!!!

  • Surely the first one has cinematic drama! but my respect goes out the the tree shot. not a lot of people will understand what it takes to see such a pure and simple composition. Brilliant.

  • I think really good photos are ones that you can relate too. This first one i really bond with, so many memories as a child on the lake and in the water. Really great shot. Love the water line perspective.

  • i can feel the soft water in that first photograph. i am in love with it!

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!
