Here’s an email from Steph Grant (sent with this photo):

Cops got called last night… the cops laughed, took pictures with us and we served them pumpkin pie. they said they hadn’t seen anything like this and we explained why we were doing it. It was great… we are going to do this more often, next time… hammocks IN the fort!

Thanks!!

    I loved the project, eventough we almost burned down the house. Note to self: Don’t place pillows directly on top of candles.

  • Just sent my fortress of Geektitude in!

    Would be so cool if there was a never ending chain of photos of everybody’s fort.

    One unified giant walled fortress, even greater than the Wall of China!

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!
