Pow Wow Hawaii 2013

Pow Wow Hawaii 2013

Next week I’m headed to Hawaii for Pow Wow Hawaii 2013. I look forward to this event all year and it’s finally that time again! Like last year, I’ll be living on the North Shore with a bunch of international artists in a beautiful house called the Utopium Estate.

Feb 11th-16th artists converge on the streets of Honolulu, painting murals and interacting with the community. There will also be youth art and music workshops, as well as lectures at the University of Hawaii.

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!
