Devan Patrick Reynolds! Congratulations, you have won the tickets! I’ll contact you today so I can get you your prize.

I just want to assure everyone that Devan was picked totally at random – everyone who entered the giveaway was assigned a number and I used Random.org to generate the winning number. I was kinda hoping one of my friends might win the tickets and take me (yeah right) but I’m glad they went to someone I don’t know at all! Have fun Devan!

Thanks to everyone who participated, some really classic jerseys out there (Levi, Caitlin, Rick). Super bonus points to Bernice for not wearing any pants and to William “Bad Billy” James for making his jersey out of a dish cloth and duct tape.

I am sorry I only had the one pair of tickets to give away! I’ll make it up to you! There will be another totally non-Olympic giveaway starting oh maybe tomorrow?

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!
