Booooooom Birthday!

You are all invited to the Booooooom Double Birthday bash! It’s my birthday, my friend Shannon’s birthday, and we’ll also be celebrating Booooooom’s 3rd birthday! (So it’s almost a triple rainbow, if you think about it!) The party is next Friday (October 8th) at Fortune – my good friend Garret owns the place and will let all of you monkeys in FREE before midnight, if you’re on our list.

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!
