Artist Peter Root latest work is ‘Ephemicropolis’, a metropolis made completely from stacks of metal staples. the piece consists of over 100,000 staples that were assembled over a time period of 40 hours. The stacks were each broken into different sizes, designed to represent everything from small scale buildings to large skyscrapers. The largest stacks are about 12 cm high, while some buildings consist of only a single staple. The whole installation takes up a floor space of about 6m x 3m.



  1. Except for an average visual experience this piece does nothing for me. Is it just me?
