Man Unveils Interactive Toothpick Sculpture of San Francisco That Took 35 Years to Create

  • 0

Artist Scott Weaver recently unveiled “Rolling Through the Bay,” a toothpick Rube Goldberg machine of the Bay Area. A product of 35 years of work and over 100,000 toothpicks, the piece can be explored via a number of ball runs that take you through toothpick replicas of Bay Area sights and attractions. Pretty cool! TC mark

      That is simply magical. Mike Kai: I think the artist asked the guy to toss in the ball – to generate a sort of random tour. The girls were converned but the artist said something like 'Good toss”

      Not sure about the USS Missouri. I know it was re-commissioned there, but other than that, it has nothing to do with the bay area.

      UFB!! I'd like to build an adjunct one in the Cascades (where I live in Bend, OR) and tour the Cascades and Coastal ranges and connect at Muir Woods. Are Redwood toothpics still forbidden? Totally UFB. Roger Wolcott, Bend, OR
