Egg Pinhole Camera

Francesco Capponi’s “Pinhegg” is an egg pinhole camera that also becomes the photograph! I love the idea that the camera is only good for one shot and must be sacrificed to reveal the image!

  • This is absolutely awesome! I’d love to see a bunch of these with the finished image in some kind of installation. The possibilities are endless…

  • That is super cool!

  • This is mindblowing.

  • The idea is truly awesome. I may have done it on the outside of the egg, to give it more of a Fabergé egg look but this is already great!

  • The technique and its outcome are stunning. I wonder whether or not it is possible to use something else than an egg?

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!
