Natacha Paganelli

“Kolo”, created by French-artist Natacha Paganelli during her artist residency in Serbia. It is currently on display at Kunsthalle Mulhouse (France) until January. Can someone go see it and let me know how it is installed in the gallery? I think it would be amazing if it was projected in a circular room.

    • natacha

      Dear Jeff,

      you could have seen Kolo in Lille untill November in big circular screen, the exhibition named Dancing machine. So that’s means usually i present this work installation in that way …. So if you need more informations, you could ask me… I’m right now in Korea working on a nother video. Thanks for having spread my video on vimeo, it was amazing for me, so i really thank you.

      Natacha

      • hey my pleasure natacha! your work is wonderful (and i realise i am not getting the full experience) please keep me up to date on your work!

  • Eric

    How is this a year old already and the internet hasn’t seen it yet???

    So awesome.

  • hey…I was at the opening and actually it is not projected on a circular room ;-/ but it’s a great piece!

    Thanks for the link!

    kiss kiss kiss

    • i wish i could go out there to see it!

  • that’s because:

    1. you don’t speak french
    2. you don’t speak serb… me neither
    3. it is not well promoted! but now it is well promoted

  • war and peace !

  • lapetitefaon

    Wow, strange and beautiful, reminds me of Whirling Dervishes!

  • This is amazing, is there a way of finding out who composed the melody for this video? Does Natacha have an official site? Are there more pieces of her out there? (I did a brief research and only found her on vimeo) What’s the name of her musician? Oh my God…I’m in love, this is seriously insane… great post Jeff, I wish this kinda artists could tour worldwide.

    And the circle room installation would be totally amazing, I think it would be a visual upgrade for the feeling it already detonates.

    • Marrine

      About her musician..look at the Vimeo! Here is themtc who made it. He is from Paris and that’s his myspace: http://www.myspace.com/mtclab

    So captivating even on a small screen. I can see if being projected in a circular space. Either way, I wish I could experience it projected right in front of me.

  • segg

    great

  • gorgeous! reminds me of Renee Rhodes‘ work a bit…

  • ynez

  • Holy damn, this was so weird… and extremely entertaining.

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!
