  • andres

    • yea its quite sad – i mean its an attempt at a good thing? but so totally weird and ugly

    Mexico City and all over the country. This is what our government and contruction companies understand as social development.

    By the way, love the blog

  • The ad in the second picture reads “Your first house”

  • Increíble; no puedo creer qué angosta es la casa de la 3era foto.

  • You should check her “Estarbucks” series too; where your coffee you drink comes from.

    First is magnificent. The last one of course makes me want to stab myself in the chest. Kind of amazed at how much emotion these evoke.

    Cheers from Nicaragua, love the blog and the pics! I lived in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon in northern Mexico my first seven years and I remember living in a neighborhood with very repetitive patterns since then, I can’t believe they’re still doing it.. By now the whole country must be one giant canvas full of different patterns! Can’t wait for the Google Earth shot of that 🙂

  • totally inspiring.

  • I’m rendered speechless….especially by the last photo.

  • Ferris

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!
