Low-Rise. A city of staples.

I'm mesmerized by this.

Staples and mirror

Low-Rise is a precarious assemblage of thousands of free-standing stacks of staples densely tessellated to create a city-like mosaic. Like a city, the staples are subject to the elements, on a micro scale. The slightest breath or vibration and the domino effect kicks in.

'fall' to pieces. Sorry. (That's probably why I'd be bad at staple buildings: my fingers are not to be trusted!)
