  • These photographs are quite beautiful and hypnotic at first. Then they are intense and troubling when I think about the mangled cars they are referencing. Quite a dynamic experience in each photograph. Thanks for sharing.

  • Ruth

    Genius!

  • These are simply beautiful. At first, I thought they were paintings.

  • Alongside Per Bak Jensen, Nicolai Howart is my favourite danish photographer. Both “Dying Birds” and “How to Hunt” has been on display near where I live this spring, and I am constantly amazed by his works. His website is definitely worth checking out – http://www.nicolaihowalt.com/

  • These photos are quite beautiful and intriguing. I almost wish I didn’t know before hand that these were called “car crash studies” and then learned afterwards. It takes away some of the abstractness of the photos when you already have a solid concrete physical thing you can link them too.

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!
