Toothpick Sculpture

“Rolling through the Bay”, the world’s largest kinetic sculpture made entirely of toothpicks. It has taken Scott Weaver more than 35 years and 100,000 toothpicks to build it. Incredible!

    Holy christ, the details in this! UNREAL! Also what an amazing way to tell the story of a city. I wonder his method in putting this together? Were there precise blueprints first? I assume there would have to be given how thought out and intricate it all is! If so those would awesome to see!

Intricately Crocheted Coral Reefs

Coral2

Toxic Seas is a passion project started in 2005 by academics and artistic partners Margaret and Christine Wertheim. The series of handmade coral reefs are meant to raise awareness about environmental issues (such as the fragile state of Australia’s Great Barrier Reef) by creating a greater appreciation for the complex design of natural formations (demonstrated through the algorithmic art of crochet). See more images below or on display at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York from September 30th until February 5th.
