Peter root ephemicropolos art installation urban city made of staples 1

Artist Peter Root has been busy collecting staples and turning the boring metal office supplies used for bundling paperwork into mesmerizing city scapes. Using 100,000 staples to cover an approximate area of 600cm x 300cm (118 inches x 236 inches), Root’s work of art entitled Ephemicropolis was born. Root broke down the stacks of staples into varying sizes, the tallest of which measures 12cm high (5 inches) and the smallest which consists of a single staple.

Have you ever been bored at your desk and started playing around with your office supplies? Well, artist Peter Root took your everyday staples and turned them into an entire city in an installation called Ephemicropolis.

A paint pen can change your staples for those special items like invitations and programs.
