British artist PETER ROOT creates a virtual city from 100,000 staples, the installation captured on time-lapse video over 40 hours – incredible!!
From art blog ARTISTsDAY.com / Peter Root’s artist statement:
‘The work I create regularly involves highly labor-intensive, mantra-like procedures of construction and assemblage. As well as being simple, playful experiments the work often touches upon themes of impermanence, repetition, structure, pattern, scale and architecture. My work often takes the form of extremely fragile, temporary arrangements, with works subject to micro-apocalyptic events such as a light breeze or a falling leaf.
I am interested in creating artwork that acknowledges and utilizes aspects of the world around me at times disregarding their intended or standard function: objects, technology, software, food, sound etc‚Äù and using these elements as starting points for exploration.’
