This Guy Painstakingly Stacked 100,000 Staples To Create A Miniature City

Who knew you could turn thousands of staples into, literally, a stable city filled with skyscrapers to look like Manhattan or Chicago? British artist Peter Root has created a city using 100,000 staples in a span of over 40-hours. He even included a time lapse which shoes how meticulous Root had to be in order to complete the project.
