"Did You Hear That?"
We're big fans of Star Wars, if you couldn't tell. (See: snowy Star Wars photography, our recent forum discussion on Star Wars design vs. Star Trek design, our breakdown of the opening scene text crawl—the list goes on.) New York artist James Haggerty has created another one to add to the list: Star Wars themed staple mosaics. He recreates the classic characters using thousands of the colored office supply pieces.

Haggerty is strategic with his staple-use—by using the dark background of the canvases, he's able to create a bit of depth that offsets the sheen given off by the staples. Taken out of context, bits and pieces of this series could easily come off as unrelated abstract artwork.
On Haggerty's Facebook page, he's even listed the number of staples that went into each finished piece. In case you were wondering: 33,580 staples for C-3PO, 10,496 Staples—7,696 silver, 2,800 red—for Darth and 21,458 staples for Greedo. Check out more of Haggerty's work on his website.
