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!

Photographer Spotlight: Angeles Peña

“Aguas de Montaña” is a journey into The Andean Patagonia, a desolate territory where photographer Angeles Peña lived all of her childhood.
