Because uniqueness in art is getting to be rare artists are turning to a uniqueness in media. For example, artist James Haggerty uses staples. Tens of thousands of staples.
The results? A heck of a lot better than I would have the patience to do. I get frustrated when the staple bends when I try to punch through one 17 page bundle. Just think of the frustration that must amount when you are making a C-3PO out of 33,580 staples. Even if only staple only bent every now and then. That still amounts to a lot.
I wonder what kind of stapler it is. Think it’s a red Swingline? I hope so. Maybe it’s one of those high-powered staplers like my computer teacher had. We would stand at the front of the room and stick staples into monitors at the back of the room.
