What do you do when you are given 100,000 staples and a floor area of approximately 600cm x 300cm? I would tender my resignation but if you are Peter Root, you build a miniature city filled with office buildings and skyscrapers. To do it, he broke the staples into various sizes ranging from 12cm high to a single staple and arranged them patiently with a very steady hand over a period of forty hours to complete the city he had in mind.

The city stood for three weeks in the atrium of the Northern Trust Bank in Guernsey, Channel Islands, while everyone tiptoed around it before it finally decided enough is enough and toppled over.
