    Woah!

    Awesome concept, bravo Rethink!

  • Chelsea

    This has to be the same people who put those stickers on loonies to make it look like the loon was covered in oil.
    Both are great!

  • I wish I was this creative 🙂

  • I’m not sure the posters were as smart as the video made about them. Great cause

  • As long as the video gets the message out there the campaign can be considered successful? The value of the clever idea is attached to the campaign and distributed through you tube, blogs etc.. Very Clever

  • Alfin Akhret

    Simple idea implemented in creative way. Brilliant 🙂

  • Nambo

    THIS IS SIMPLY GREAT!!!!

    Super clever idea, very pretty video. Plus Foreground is such a good song!

  • very interesting way of conveying the message without being trite

    This video along with the accompanying dramatic piano music gives the impression that the poster, in all its cleverness, is more important than the cause which it serves to remind people of. The poster is a great idea, but the video cheapens it. I like the idea of bringing the muck to people, so they have to confront it. Something else you could try: 1) collect the dead animals that wash up on the beach after an oil spill. 2) Freeze them. 3) Spread them around vancouver

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!
