    just beautiful.

  • Sammy

    Beautiful. I like the 3-Demensionality of it.
    I think that gives it it’s uniqueness.

  • makemeasandwich

    I wonder if different filiment types or different lighting would make them less visible ?

  • 13Mavrick13

    your website is addicting.
    how am i supposed to get work done?

  • Anthony Pittarelli

    im sooo confused, but this is sooo awesome

  • Joe

    I just got a cool idea. What if you photographed these in stereographic! You know, when you take two pictures then play them back and forth fast so it looks 3D. that’d be awesome…

  • I don’t normally leave comments, but this is awesome.

  • These are amazing, it really does manipulate the mind. Where do you source your inspiration from?

  • rachillin

    Brilliant really and such a lovely plane of strawberries it is… It’s like a dream!

  • Sarah

    Wow.. these are beautiful. I couldn’t have even imagined these in my wildest dreams. I really like the strawberry one the best. It took me a minute to realize that these were real, and not photo edits! They are done perfectly.

  • Really cool, the strawberry patch especially.

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!
