  • Hi,

    I just found your site and was so excited and inspired by the wonderful creations people made. I loved every one of the little boats. You’ve really had a great idea with this project; it really touched my heart. My husband and I are nature artists and just love it when people work with nature and just create like kids again. So much imagination! You had such a great response from people all over the world! I just had so much fun looking at every single boat. My favorite was the one with the bee following it…..that would make a wonderful children’s book story.

    My husband and I make furniture and houses from nature and people and animals, too. I hope you’ll visit my site sometimes. Would love to know what you think. Thank you so much for sharing such a wonderful project! I love it!!
    Debbie and Mike Schramer

    • glad you enjoyed it debbie – yes i would love to see the bee one become a little story! the houses you build are amazing!

  • Dom

    oui, nous sommes capables de nous mobiliser collectivement pour créer de la beauté dans ce monde. J’en suis profondément certaine et réjouie quand je le vérifie par des billets de cette sorte. Je ne connaissais pas l’existence de ce projet et j’aurai plaisir d’en parler à posteriori… des photos sont passées sur tumblr…
    belle idée.
    Merci

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!
