After The Fall, a photo series by Hin Chua. There is something about this first image that I find absolutely terrifying.

  • love, love, love the final one. and you are right, the first one is slightly twin-peakish…

  • Trees=terrifying.

  • All of these are stunning. The first, second, and last photos are very intriguing!

  • I like the lift park scouting for something.

  • Wow, those trees look quite a bit like pieces of ginger!

    I am giving away a free fine art print at my blog:

  • e

    Fun but scary!

  • Some of these are very post-apocalyptic. I really like the one with all the lifts. It’s like a bunch of hands grasping at the sky for something.

  • Nynke

    I like 3 & 5

  • zdx

  • anna

    does anyone happen to know where the first picture was taken? it looks a LOT like my hometown in germany, or just an equally dismal one with the same trees, buses, and sad houses…

  • @Anna…looks like these photos were taken in the UK.

  • Nice work.

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!
