    Link: The Making Of Ephemicropolis - Artist Peter Root spent over 40 hours stacking staples in the form of a city for a recent art installation.

    Fascinating. I don`t even pretend to have that level of patience.

    I`m sure his dad thinks the money he spent on that art degree was well spent.

    I watched the video and half expected people to like this as I got to the comments. I am really glad im not the only one that thought this was a complete waste of time. The dude pretty much lays them down randomly except for the city walls..... I could shake a box of staples and pour it out and achive the same effect in less time.

    It kind of creeped me out... It sort of reminded me of that gloomy city from Inception.

    Anyone?? Just me? Okay.

    One does not need an arts degree to do art.

    This mess of staples doesn`t look like a city. No city on earth, not even LA, is made entirely out of downtown cores. What`s with that huge wall he makes near the beginning?

    For every square kilometer of downtown skyscrapers there are dozzens even hundreds of square kilometers of low-rise commercial and residential structiues: stores, housing etc. and hundreds more square kilometers of farmland.

    Where are the factories? Where are the roads?

    I liked the fantasy map drawer from before. At least his thing made sense.

    "Loads of viral videos, games, memes, lists and social networking for when you`re bored. Updated every day, so visit often."

    Regardless of that message plastered across the top of this site, it`s still packed full of crap and boring content.

    I agree with Madest, that is not art. I would be ART if, after laying the staples down, a sad looking girl stood in the middle of it, recited bad poetry about teen angst, then peed on a picture of Vladimir Putin. That would be a meaningful statement and worthy of grant money from the NEA.

    Thats a good concept, but only worth the staples used to create it!

    @Oldfrt Agreed, also there should be a bunch of hipsters around that had a deep, thoughtful look on their face although none of them could undestand sh*t. Now THAT`s what I call art!

    @mykunter no doubt there was an EU grant for that.

    That `city` doesn`t follow any of the patterns of a real city. It`s bogus.
