    Love them!
    and the first one has what seems to be a little fold in the top right corner, that really captured my imagination.

    • haha yea i found myself staring at that as well

  • The Chandelier photo is certainly my favorite. It gives me this really serene almost calming feeling. This is what makes me love photography!

  • I like the collection of images as a whole entity..they seem to have a common thread running throughout.. definitely a good eye.

  • holy shit.

  • mila

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!
