    Good luck scanning everything !

    Cheers,
    JW

    • im taking a stack of about 150 photos with me and it will be determined by the size of the space. there will be a full post after the show of all the work and contributors!

  • This show is going to be great!

    However, my photo credit here is incorrect: I took the first shot (of the man in his shack / office), and not the second shot.

    • yea sorry Olli, i noticed that i flipped the first two names and corrected it!

  • Margot

    this makes me smile.

  • Hello,
    Same question as JW, congratulations for the project, I am just happy that my mails reach on time, it does not matter that my photographs are chosen or not.

    All the best from Kathmandu, Nepal.

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!
