    awesome.

    Nice drawings and some nice questions to the world and society! the things that are told are highly debatable with alot of possible viewingpoints, which makes it a hard matter. While the drawings, on the other hand, make the whole piece seem very light and it calms the subjects down a little. iLike!

  • Like the aesthetics. And I’ve always been interested by text with drawings.

  • Fantastic and effective messages in their simplicity.

  • All the drawings are great, I really like the last one. Great work!

  • It is so interesting when an artist reveals some small, simple details of ordinary life that when you look at them see how deep, different those are.

  • Shea Kennedy

    Awesome! And moths actually only seem to be attracted to bright lights but what they’re actually doing is trying to get in behind the light which is naturally the darkest spot they can find.

  • tamara

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!
