One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco. Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today.

One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco

The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Via his website Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world: I have used different brands of toothpicks depending on what I am building.

I also have many friends and family members that collect toothpicks in their travels for me. See the sculpture for yourself at the Tinkering Studio through the end of June. The Book Surgeon (15 pieces) Using knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Brian Dettmer carves one page at a time.

The Book Surgeon (15 pieces)

Nothing inside the out-of-date encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed. Dettmer manipulates the pages and spines to form the shape of his sculptures. He also folds, bends, rolls, and stacks multiple books to create completely original sculptural forms. "My work is a collaboration with the existing material and its past creators and the completed pieces expose new relationships of the book’s internal elements exactly where they have been since their original conception," he says. "The richness and depth of the book is universally respected yet often undiscovered as the monopoly of the form and relevance of the information fades over time.

Dettmer is originally from Chicago, where he studied at Columbia College. Update: Read our exclusive interview with the Book Surgeon here. Brian Dettmer's website. Monolithic Sculptures Created from Junk. Steven Siegel’s monumental sculptures using discarded trash and waste as his chosen medium make a statement that goes beyond simply preaching about sustainability. “Freight and Barrel,” 2004, Three Rivers Arts Festival, Pittsburgh, crushed plastics. All images courtesy of Steven Siegel . Before you start licking your lips at the thought of tucking into a giant burrito, you might want to consider what the delicacy before you contains. If this is junk food, then it’s never been super-sized like this before — and it’s never contained more junk. But let’s get serious for a second. “Two of ‘em,” 2009, Penn State Berks, Reading, PA — bamboo, aluminum cans In truth, this is junk art on a massive scale, each sculpture created out of the discarded detritus of modern life yet somehow existing in a certain harmony with its surroundings.
