  • The ingenuity and creativity of people never ceases to amaze me and even seeing them up close my mind refuses to accept that these a rolls of toilet paper. So Great.

  • Resourceful way of creating art out of a mundane household item. The art looks elegant, a far cry from its medium.

    Forget about the medium
    In my mind it is might as well be the finest silk
    The application is inspiring
    The forms are imaginative Majestic

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!
