Don’t touch my stapler

Or should I say staple city, or Ephemicropolis.

Yes, those are staples.  Thousands of them.  Some full sized magazines, some individual staples.  Here’s a nice close up shot of the individual sky scrapers

And below you can see the entire breath of the domain of Ephemicropolis.

It looks like a 5×5 grid of tiles.  Except I just made that up, and I have no idea how large those tiles are, they look like 18inchers.

They say it’s about 600 x 300 cm.  According to Google that’s 27,900 sq inches, or 193.75 sq ft.  That’s alot.

And if that’s not enough, check out this video of how he made it. One person spending 40 hours breaking, and stacking, and removing, and setting up these staples. I bet he had more then a few moments when he wanted to burn down the building.
