    I’d say City of Lost Children if it were a fictitious France. Or Amélie if I have to pick a real France.

  • une femme est une femme.

    because elegance and vulgarity have never embraced so tightly.

  • Un Long Dimanche De Fiançailles (A Very Long Engagement) or Jeux D’enfants (Love Me If You Dare). They’re both really great!

    It is about a man who goes to teach at a troubled boys school, and ends up teaching them music. It’s one of the most beautiful films ever. If I were to compare it to an English film, it would have to be Good Will Hunting.

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!
