    • Haha, i was just about to say that

      • Callum

        I got the same feeling.

  • Raphael

    Loving them all, except the one with all the hands. Felt a hint of a Man Ray vibe on the first one.

  • I really like the second one. The first one kind of reminds me of some Mark Weaver stuff

  • cool. it’s like you could create your own surreal story for each one.

  • no

    I heard that mark weaver was a fart monster?

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!
