  1. That is really cool!!!!! And could explain why i was having so much trouble finding staples. lol

  2. Staple City is amazing! (But I don't think my boss would approve if I tried to build one at the tax office.)

  3. He is amazing. I watched the shadows as they moved across the floor of his work area - it was obvious that his staple city took many days to complete - along with a ton of staples. It is also obvious that Peter has a passion for what he does, that's why his work is so intricate and awe inspiring. Again all I can say is AMAZING !

  4. I've seen his work before! It's incredible!

  5. Wow, just fascinating work! So intricate.

  6. So unique! This is my first time seeing staples used for art!!!
