Scott Weaver's San Francisco toothpick sculpture - Rolling Through the Bay

Roger Ebert's twitter pointed me to this today and it's so epic, amazing and charming I thought I'd share. Scott Weaver spent the past 35 years building a model of the San Francisco Bay Area with more than 100,000 toothpicks. Best of all, it's kinetic. Beautiful, unreal and fun--just like the real place it depicts.

On display now at the Exploratorium's Tinkering Studio through June 19th.
