  • This is pretty badass.

    • Z0NU5

      Yeah, that was pretty much my reaction, too. I wonder what LaPetiteFaon is gonna say.

  • Hiroyuki Hamada

    Ha ha ha! Wow! It makes really nice popping out contrast for the depth, and the little exciting details are cool too. Really nice. Thanks for posting Jeff.

  • Awesome.

    I couldn’t figure out the medium used just by looking at the work, I had to actually read the intro line to get it.

  • This is really an inspiring use of new media. Great work!

  • The colors she was able to get are beautiful! This is so amazing!

  • Kingstonian

    BOOOOOOOM! great process.

  • Super awesome. It looks like ultra concentrated sidewalk chalk!

    Wow- I like the use of incendiaries. It appeals to my pyromaniacal side. I also appreciate seeing the work in process shots- very cool. I would, however, recommend some form of eye protection. Not to sound all dad-like, but you only get one pair of eyeballs.
    Gorgeous work.

    Her process made me think of Cai Guo-Qiang (http://www.caiguoqiang.com), so it’s fun to see that the results are so different.

  • Rosemarie also has some beautiful time lapse photographs generated by playing 1980s video games. Peep the work on her website : http://www.rosemariefiore.com/pages.php?content=gallery.php&navGallID=12

  • I love seeing innovative works using unconventional materials. Cool stuff!

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!
