Rolling through the Bay by Scott Weaver This might just be the most ingenious sculpture ever created. Scott Weaver's Rolling through the Bay sculpture of San Francisco is not just a sculpture made of 100k toothpicks, it is also a kinetic sculpture that gives you multiple tours of San Francisco via different paths in the sculpure. Using ping pong balls as your tour guides, you can see various landmarks, neighbords, historic locations, and iconic symbols of the Bay Area.This amazing sculpture has taken over 3,000 hours in 35 years to create, and is still being built with toothpicks from around the world.
Minas Tirith Made From Matchsticks | 10 Times One Minas Tirith was always the better Minas. Not because good is better than evil which can actually be debated, and not because it looks cooler, which can also be argued against. But because it’s the capital of Gondor, dude! And you can’t dispute that. For the 3 of you that don’t know what I’m talking about, Minas Tirith is the legendary site of the final battle between the dark forces of Sauron and everyone else in Middle Earth. I’m not gonna say who won, but you’ll probably be happy if you’re a fan of Viggo Mortensen.
I was checking out some photos emerging from this weekend’s Interesting 2011 conference held in London (there was a world record attempt at ping pong ball mouse trap nuclear fission, among other things) when I stumbled onto a portrait of the group’s organizer Russel Davies being drawn with a very strange device. It turns out the robotic drawing machine was built by maker/designer/craftsman Sandy Noble and he calls it a Polargraph which is really nothing more than a pen attached to string that’s moved by two small motors. With an assist from good ‘ole gravity and some clever software the pen arcs back and forth, similar to a standard back-and-forth plotter printer, creating the beautifully textured drawings above.

Truly Inspired Traditional Black and White Drawings Many people think that the tradition artwork will die in the time of digital life. Actually, the digital art is just another trend of the art development through the history. Unlike the digital computer arts, the traditional pencils and colors give you a physical sense of the artwork that you can touch and walk around. The sculpture is one of the traditional arts’ examples that cannot be replaced with a digital version or digital sculpture. The black and white artwork using the pencils and the charcoal is one of the challenging forms or art that uses only the gray colors to visualize the scene and ideas based on the light and shadows. This type of art requires amazing control of the pencil.
