  • Andrew

    whoa

  • nice

  • Nelson Duarte

    Correct me if i’m wrong, but almost sure that this warehouse is located in Maia, a city in middle of Porto, Portugal

    • hmm the video was posted by Ironlak Australia and I thought I remembered reading it was Melbourne. Ill try to find more info

      • Pi

        It is in Maia for sure 😉

      • i can’t find any info, can you provide a link to information otherwise I’ll leave it as just an abandoned area

      • Pi

        i can’t provide a link, but i’m pretty sure. he has been with some people i know here in portugal. anyway, maybe the location is not that relevant, since ironlak didn’t release the info. i guess that abandoned area is the best way to describe it

      • haha maybe they don’t wanna blow up the spot!

  • Esme jarrell

    Wow, this is really great.

    MUTE. BUTTON.

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!
