    So, so, so curious. The rest of the series is amazing as well, it feels like a different story behind each photo.

  • I agree, there is a really narrative quality to these images.

  • i like the narrative and mise-en-scene of each photograph

  • NAMBO

    Woah! I haven’t seen anything like this before, I wouldn’t mind visiting or maybe even live like they do! Seems interesting.

  • ALEX.I

    the second image reminds quite a bit of the greek tale of narcissus and yh they do form a narrative

  • cool.. some of those are kinda creepy – 3rd from the bottom, I imagine has a knife behind her back.

  • very interesting social documentary, this sort of thing is very big at the moment, a similar british photographer David Spero did a series of people who are settlers making house from fallen trees etc. Worth checking out if your interested by this…

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!
