We Built This City With Staples

I am nothing short of impressed with Peter Root, the creator of this masterpiece. He says “Low-Rise is a precarious assemblage of thousands of free-standing stacks of staples densely tessellated to create a city-like mosaic. Like a city, the staples are subject to the elements, on a micro scale. The slightest breath or vibration and the domino effect kicks in.

I say, I never use my stapler and I now know what I’m going to do with the box of staples sitting on my desk. Who knew that stacked staples create a really cool texture that look like rows and rows of windows. Plus he put it on a glass table which gives the illusion of reflections of buildings in water. Once again I’m impressed.

    Wow… it’s eerily convincing!

    Thank God they don’t ship staples individually, eh? I couldn’t imagine trying to paste each one of those suckers together individually. Yeesh!

    That was an stunning view! As if they are real building. Great Job for those who create that, how many day it takes?

    Wow, yeah i wanna know how much time that actually took, and when the artist first started did they intend on making something like this? or was it supposed to be a lot smaller? =D did they start in the middle with the tallest buildings first?
