Staple-cities large and small

We covered artist Peter Root’s smaller Low-Rise staplescape back in 2009. It’s only about 1.5 m2. His newest work, Ephemicropolis, shown uppermost, is a full 18 m2. Be sure to check out the making-of video at his website. As impressive as Root’s models are, I have to admit I am almost equally charmed by Tofi Stoler’s miniature of Manhattan Island, shown immediately above. [via Boing Boing]
