  • Very very cool concept. I kind of want one.

  • Luke

    so sick!

  • Nice, I can see a philosophy under them.

  • Nambo

    OH YES! VERY NICE TO SEE THIS KIND OF THING MADE WITH MONEY!!

  • At first I thought they were going to be money sculptures, I love the forms created to get the right words, almost organised folding but I like how it’s not all straight, the way that the letters are at different angles and there are different sized folds is really interesting. I’d love to make drawings of these as the shapes themselves and then another set of drawings of just the type.

  • Damn, thats awesome!!

  • Hoffman

    ..you’ll be rich soon

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!
