Peter Root

Ever get really bored at work and start building things out of office supplies?  I like to think that’s how Peter Root got started constructing micro cities out of stacks of staples.

It’s amazing how a few hundred shocks of faceless, uniform staples can instantly resemble a dense urban landscape.  It’s like zooming out too fast while playing SimCity on an old Gateway computer and the processor can’t remap the colorway fast enough.  A metal conurbation of silver stalagmites, a disinterested mapping of the city and it’s innate anonymity.  If you pull back far enough everything becomes impersonal; an entire city held in the palm of your eye, a collection of towers, a tessellating assortment of steel.
