If you have the creative bent of mind and have clear idea of what possible designs can be created with the available resources without much extra investment, nothing can stop! Creativity, proper usage of available materials and out-of-the-box idea can lead you to craft stunning piece of art.
Be it toothpicks, or stapler pins, ingenious artists around the globe keep coming up with the artworks that leave the spectators wide mouth opened. Peter Root’s Ephemicropolis does the same for the very fact that it is not run of the mill instead it’s a beautiful city design made up of 100,000 stapler pins.
Yes, you read it just correct! Stacks of staples broken into varying sizes from full stacks about 12cm high down to single staples and arranged in a crafty way to form the city design.
Dubbed Ephemicropolis, the artwork crafted entirely from staples is an incredible modern cityscape. Artist Peter Root created the urban spread out by carefully placing 100,000 pieces of the tiny office stationery in building-like stacks. Using approx 600x300cm floor area and spending long 40 hours, Peter used stapler pins that otherwise are considered to be just meant to perform one task for which it is made.
Who thought the little staples used as office supplies could lead to such creative masterpiece. In my personal opinion, it’s actually the out-of-the-box idea of coming up with the city made of staples. Infact, peter has changed our perspective of looking at things that we tend to ignore considering it to be the commodity designed to solve singular tasks.
Also, take a look at the spectacular toothpick structure created by Scott Weaver….With a little vision and creativity anyone can make a beautiful knock-off version. What’s the wait! Take inspiration from these talented artists, tap into your creativity and have fun!
