Peter Root’s City of Staples

After over 40 hours of work and over 100,000 staples, artist Peter Root‘s “Ephemicropolis” city of staples art installation is complete. Hundreds of variously sized stacks of staples create a tiny urban landscape. By the pinch of Root’s fingertips and meticulous structural organization, his vision came to life. From an aerial view this tiny city-scape bares uncanny resemblance to the architectural chaos and complexity of the concrete jungle. A closer look shows the intricate piecing together of  simple stacks of staples which were broken apart to create tiny skyscrapers to suburban neighbors on the outskirts of the city. [via trendland]
