  • to call Foam a “magazine” is almost unfair. it is more like having a high quality art book land on my door step. one of very few print publications worth your money.

    sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet

  • Wow, this is amazing! I’m so in love with the design/layout of this! Gorgeous.

  • Sarah

    I loooooove Foam! Totally awesome art/photography publication. I agree, it’s not just a magazine. Aside from the significant higher price tag, each is as collectible as the next. Art books and other publications are one of my indulgences, way too many piles are forming in my apartment…

  • totally clean!!

  • Dee

    Beautiful layout and an awesome job arranging the increased PR for this magazine. I love being able to see all the new aspects of it on Facebook. Thankyou Heather! You are doing a great job.

    Another Purple Prose… (I guess Purple Prose was another something, and so on.)

    This kind of magazines cost a lot of money, have a short span life, don’t pay (or so little) and are read by almost nobody.
    Some are very expensive, others are simply free.

    There are made to turn pages. Not to read them.
    I am tired of those but find myself with that kind of stuff in my hands and on my selves.

  • So good.

  • one of the best for sure. If you’re ever in Amsterdam make sure to stop in the gallery

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!
