San Francisco made of Toothpicks

San Francisco made of Toothpicks

Amazing sculpture created by Scott Weaver out of 100,000 toothpicks.

Made over the course of 35 years, unique sculpture features multiple ball runs that allow you to go on “tours” of different parts of San Francisco.

“Rolling Through the Bay” toothpick sculpture will be on display in the Tinkering Studio until the end of June.

    This is what I Wood do if I had a lot of free time. Once I Pick the right sculpture to build, I can really get on a Roll. It would be a Ball to build something as Grain stream as this. It seems like a very Glue and interesting material to build with.But of course, no pun intended.

    What I find most fascinating is an entire city’s nebulous collective memory projection onto a material cloud, equally chaotic, made of humble toothpicks.

    Building this for the sake of self-fulfilment rather than money is extrodinarily refreshing.

    He has to have a lot of patience to make sculptures with that amount of POINT on precision. I guess it’s difficult to SnAP his concentration. Although I think he has to BRANCH out his variety of sculptures. If he doesn’t, people might start to get BOARD and he’ll have to walk the PLANK. I wonder if he will LEAF some parts out of his next sculpture so it will take less time to build. But if he did that it would only turn out OAKay. Who knows, he might be the ROOTS of a whole new art form. But you never know in art, you could be BARKING up the wrong tree. He could turn in to a WOODda been artists.

    i wonder how many times it just fell apart and he just went mad because he had almost finished or had just made a really intricate piece and it just falls apart in front of him
    i know i would have got really annoyed if i was trying to make that!
