What you see above is the skyline of a miniature city created entirely from staples. If you are trying to guess how many of them were used, then let us make it easier. It is 100,000! Pieces were meticulously placed by designer Peter Root. “Stacks of staples were broken into varying sizes from full stacks about 12cm high down to single staples. These stacks were then stood up and arranged over a period of 40 hours.”
Called the Ephemicropolis 2010, this miniature city has a floor area of 600x300cm.
