“rolling through the bay”

35 yrs and over 100,000 toothpicks later you get….A Rube Goldberg machine of SF by artist Scott Weaver. Pretty cool.

Thanks moi for the find!


Because I don’t know what this is called I will call it the “Pinch” because that’s the first thing that comes to mind when I see it.  Mural on the side of a building in San Francisco (next to that Furniture and Carpets building in the previous post.  Fun.  Always enjoy art on buildings.

Really liked this random building in San Francisco on Market Street.  Just noticed the center pivot windows.  Pretty cool feature.

sf federal bldg_morphosis

Had a chance to check out the San Francisco Federal Building by Morphosis recently when I was in SF. Interesting to see it in it’s completed state because the last time I saw it was about 4 years ago (give or take) with Fowler’s class at Poly. There weren’t more than 20 floors of the building finished then, but we were allowed to climb up to the top of what was completed at that time. Pretty cool to see what took shape since then. Some detail shots of the building below.

A glimpse of the outside of the Contemporary Jewish museum by Daniel Liebskind in San Francisco.  Also located nearby is Yerba Buena Park and the SFMOMA by Mario Botta which you can see in the reflection of the glass door in the last image.  There’s a tasty mexican restaurant, Tropisueno, that I met up with Chris, Melissa, Rachel, Oana, and Justin at for lunch.  Sooo good to see you guys!

color therapy of perception_chor boogie

Grafitti Artist, Chor Boogie, has covered 1028 Market Street in San Francisco in one of the most amazing murals.  Caught a glimpse of it on my way to check out the Federal Building by Morphosis just down the street.

The mural is called “Color Therapy of Perception” and is part of San Francisco’s “Art in Storefronts” and “Street smARTS” programs.  The mural “explores the healing aspect that colors have on the subconscious and their conscious effects on modern-day society”.

The colors are so vibrant and Chor Boogie skill with spray paint is pretty spectacular.  I could have stared at it all day.  It’s a pretty mesmerizing mural and set of eyes staring back at you.  If you are ever in the area you should check it out because it’s well worth it.

a vision of color…..

The Artist leaves his mark…
