Neighbors

Neighbors is a six-part project about people from San Francisco. What I like about it is there isn’t too much editing, it’s just a conversation while the person works. This is the Mike Giant interview.

  • Droolin

    Great interview. It’s a cool thing when you have these reoccurring thoughts that stay on your mind for months and months and somebody puts them into words. It helps you to understand your own thoughts, it’s like they’ve read your mind and told you what you’re thinking about from another perspective. It’s comforting to know you haven’t gone insane.

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!
