      yep, my thoughts exactly, very eerie

    I saw some of these beautiful photographs in a small show a year or so ago, such amazing work. It’s definitely the kind of work you need to go see for yourself, in person.

  • These pictures definitely make me wonder where Sharrod is today. Excellent work.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for all of your kind comments about my work.

    @Mr Draned: Sharrod will be starting his senior year of high school in September. He hasn’t decided if he will enter the military or go to college. When I first met him, he was dead set on going into the military. Fingers crossed that he chooses college since his dreams and desires will be better served that route but ultimately, obviously, it’s his decision. It’s been an amazing journey watching him grow up, gaining his confidence so that all these pictures to be made, and mentoring him when allowed.

  • really beautiful work, and great subject matter

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!
