Most people look at a staple and see something used to secure a bunch of papers together, but as anyone who is familiar with this site knows, artists tend to see things a bit differently. Using 100,000 staples artist Peter Root has constructed a miniature metropolis featuring 4-inch-tall skyscrapers, 1-staple-tall low-rise buildings, and everything in between. Built on the the floor of a bank atrium in Guernsey, Channel islands, the staple city is called ”Ephemicropolis” and took Peter 40 hours to construct – watch the video below to see his process condensed into 3 minutes.
