  • Love these! Something very Enid Blyton about them.

  • I just want to touch those clouds, this is amazing!

  • Sure, and I want to make love in it !

  • Oh my god! I love it! They are amazing.

    what a beautiful concept, and execution, though I wish the floors were painted white so it would be a continuous floating, look, though I guess the artist didn’t have control over that!

  • Way cooler than a grass hut… but the foundation and roofing leave something to be desired; I imagine Mike Holmes would have a few choice things to say about the insulation, too.

  • These are genious, they look so realistic. I love how they lure you in to wanting to climb the ladder and see what’s inside, even if it was simply the same as the outside, the not knowing is the best part. The second sculpture is even better as you can’t look inside, making the viewer use their imagination as to what could be.

  • just GREAT!!!

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!
