Yours Truly

I’m really excited to announce that Booooooom and Yours Truly are joining forces on a project! I’ve been following their work for awhile now and I’m beaming just thinking about how cool this is gonna be!

If you’ve never seen their site before you’re in for a very unproductive morning! They’ve spent the past couple years convincing a whole slew of musicians to come and perform in their studio space. Little Dragon, Chromeo, The Morning Benders, Toro Y Moi, Local Natives, Mayer Hawthorne, the list of artists they’ve worked with is ridiculous.

I’ll tell you more about our project tomorrow but in the mean time give these guys a warm welcome, and check out a couple videos below!

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!
