  • looove the disproportional bodies, awesome!

  • In some of the works the skewed proportions are just barely perceptible, so until you “see it” you’re just left with this haunted feeling of something being slightly off. Which kind of mimics the feeling of being in suburbia. Really cool!

  • Awesome, oddball portraits.

  • Magda

    I love the authority figures! The uniforms are great!

  • woooooOOOOOOOOooooooo

  • Shieauwn

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!
