    I love Luca Barcellona’s work. <3

  • amazing stuff..bringing back d ol skool

  • this level of craftsmanship is absent from much of the work i see these days

  • this is like OMG !!

  • Jason

    can anyone tell me where to find nibs like that? especially that enormous “fin” tailed one in the first video?

  • jason

    Actually, went ahead and answered my own question after suffering from extreme *ahem* pen envy.
    The “fin tailed” one is called a folded ruling pen, and is actually quite easy to make yourself. the spear tipped one is just a ruling pen, and is around $45 most places i looked. the very broad tipped pen is an Automatic Lettering Pen, and appears to be a size 6A

    • yea i wanna find one of those wide tip ones! thanks jason

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!
