Urban Interventions

Gestalten has just released a brilliant book, Urban Interventions. There are so many “street art” books out there with a haphazard selection of derivative work that I’ve become a bit jaded. This book is such a nice surprise, bursting with energy and filled with amazing work I’ve never seen before.

    Urban interventions are the next generation of artwork to hit public space and It is the first book to document these very current, personal art projects in a comprehensive way. I’ll definitely recommend it.

      i think there have been some similar books around before, take, for example The Art Of Rebellion 1 and 2. And it feels that the urban intervention genre had already hit its (popularity) peak a few years ago.
      Anyway this seems a book worth checking out

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!
