Silver Lining

Artist Timothy Paul Myers created prodigious Mother's Day window installations for all Tory Burch boutiques inspired by a 1957 image of Tory’s Mother in Cuba. Using a staple gun and heaps of ingenuity [plus 160 hours of time], Myers recreated the photograph with 185,000 simple silver office staples!

I haven't watched the video yet, now I know to do so with the sound down :)
This is an incredible project, both in concept and finished product. The staples really give it a feeling of embroidery stitches. Beautiful!
