Last week I saw my buddy Levi Maestro in California and he was telling me about his new project Becomb (you may have seen it popping up on Instagram).

He said that when you’re doing what you love, time becomes irrelevant and he handed me one of his beautiful Infinity Pieces. It took me a second to realise there was no watch! I love this concept so much. Most people don’t even wear watches for the sake of functionality, so why not remove function altogether? Timeless time pieces.

I’m always inspired by people like Levi really going after it – not just talking – actually doing it. Now I have a nice reminder every time I look at my wrist.

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!
